Broadway production of Hair comes to London

Hair2a


Musical theatre does not offer much for the retro connoisseur, but last week it was announced that the Broadway production of Hair is coming to the Gielgud Theatre in London.

Hair was first performed off-Broadway in 1967, transferring to Broadway a year later. It has since been revived several times with the current Broadway production winning a prestigious Tony award. For the first time ever, the entire cast of a Broadway production is coming over to the UK. The show is set against a backdrop of the Vietnam war and features a cast of hippies, the infamous nude scene and songs including “Aquarius” and “Let the Sun Shine In”.

Described as “a celebration of life, love and freedom, and a passionate cry for hope and change” Hair may sound like a naïve relic from a more innocent time, but new audiences have been finding parallels between the anti-Vietnam sentiments of the show and the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Previewing from 1 April, tickets are currently on sale priced between £17.50 and £65 from the Delfont Mackintosh website.
