It is the dawning of The Age of Aquarius once again! The summer of love springs forth amongst the backdrop of war, political tyranny and cultural strife. A group of freedom fighters bound together by love, independent spirit and critical thought share the message that can heal the world. Hair, the legendary rock musical, bursts onto the stage with its Grammy Award-winning score. Exploring ideas of mind expansion, personal and collective rights, sexual and political revolution and peace, Hair remains relevant and as important to share with audiences as ever. The show is the ultimate call for the hopes of bringing the nation together. Unifying each other with the message of love, peace, and understanding.
