“The American Tribal Love Rock Musical”stunned New York when it opened in 1967 at Joseph Papp’s Public Theatre under the direction of Gerald Friedman (current head of acting at NC School of the Arts).  The following year, it moved to Broadway, where it played for 1,750 performances.  It produced several Top 40 hit songs, including “Aquarius”, “Let the Sun Shine In”, “Easy to Be Hard” and “Good Morning, Starshine”.  In 1979, a film version by Milos Forman (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus, Ragtime) appeared.  In 2009, a new Broadway production of Hair directed by Diane Paulus (The Donkey Show) won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.  Time Magazine declared “Today, Hair seems more daring than ever.”
