Can You Hair the Music? (NYC)

News Story

Long hair don’t care when it’s the age of Aquarius. Pace School of Performing Arts is wigging out and letting its hair down for performances of the classic musical "Hair."

Claude, Berger, and Sheila are back with the Tribe in this blast from the past, brought to you by Pace School of Performing Arts. Hippies, rejoice! Hair is coming to the Schaeberle Studio Theater.

A Tony Award-winning musical, Hair tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila, and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Ultimately, Claude must decide whether to resist the draft as his friends have done, or to succumb to the pressures of his parents (and conservative America) to serve in Vietnam, compromising his pacifistic principles and risking his life. Directed and choreographed by Saheem Ali, musical direction by Rodney Bush, book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, and music by Galt MacDermot.
