Hair, the Musical

Today to celebrate our anniversary we saw Hair at the Al Hirschfeld Theater on Broadway. It seems that we have spent a lot of time this year reliving the events of 40 years ago. Hair originally opened at the Public Theater on Lafayette Street on October 17, 1967. It moved to the Biltmore Theater on April 29, 1968. The current revival opened this past March 31. Hair generated top 40 hits in the late 1960s including:
  • Hair - Cowsills
  • Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In - Fifth Dimension
  • Easy to Be Hard - Three Dog Night
  • Good Morning Starshine - Oliver

The show included the famous nude scene. The lights on the performers were very low. On several occasions the actors went into the audience and danced. I even high fived one of the actors.
