After winning a WhatsOnStage award in 2018, this celebrated production will now embark on a colourful journey of peace and love to Cardiff as part of a UK tour after a London season.
Welcome to the ‘Age of Aquarius’. It’s 1967 and HAIR’s hippie ‘tribe’ youngsters in the East Village of New York are yearning to change the world, questioning authority and the American flag. Wild, colourful, sexually liberated and free, they are united in protest and song, under the shadow of the Vietnam War.
Hair, which is adored for its Grammy award-winning score featuring iconic hits such as ‘Aquarius’, ‘Let the Sun Shine In’, ‘I Got Life’and ‘Good Morning Starshine’is written by Gerome Ragni (book and lyrics), James Rado(book and lyrics) and Galt MacDermot(music).
