New rehearsal images have been released for the upcoming 50th anniversary production of Hair the Musical, playing at The Vaults from the 4th October. Here’s a glimpse of what has been happening:
1967 and HAIR‘s hippie-hood youngsters live as The Tribe, in the East Village of New York: yearning to change the world, questioning authority and the American flag. They are wild, colourful, free, sexually liberated beautiful people who join in protest and song – under the shadow of the Vietnam War. Featuring classic hit songs: Aquarius, Let the Sun Shine In and Good Morning Star Shine – and the story of youth and war still resounds throughout the world making this a topical musical for the millennial generation. 2017 vividly sees the world protesting and marching, fighting for freedom of speech; from Trump to Brexit via Syria – the core spirit of HAIR.
Directed by Jonathan O’Boyle, the musical features book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot.
Meanwhile, the cast for the production is led by Andy Coxon as Berger. He will be joined by Daniel Bailey, Adam Dawson, Patrick George, Jammy Kasongo, Jessie May, Natalie Green, Laura Johnson, Robert Metson, Liam Ross-Mills, Shekina McFarlane Koryanne Stevens and Kirsten Wright.
This 50th anniversary production is directed by Jonathan O’Boyle and features book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot.
