"Hair" is the only show that I’ve ever seen that felt like an experience. The cast aka The Tribe is excellent, the production is fantastic and the songs sound better then ever. The shows themes (Sex, War, Drugs, Race) are as relevant today as they were forty years ago. The best part is the bond that the Tribe forms with the audience. It resonates with everyone long after they’ve left the theater. I urge all theatergoers to order tickets, participate in the show and dance in the finale. You will never forget the "Hair" experience.
If you weren't around to see the first showing of Hair (in the 1960s, I think), you probably won't appreciate this one too much. Audiences back in the day must have been easier to entertain - I found Hair on Broadway pretty dry. The sets were disappointing. There was lots of jumping. Unfortunately, the production was missing a story.
Hair brought me back to a time 40 years ago that feels like a million years ago now. The tribe is energetic and fun and perform the material with joy.
This was a fun show. The songs from the 60s were familiar and enjoyable to watch in a Broadway show. It was nothing spectacular, but fun to watch.
