HAIR
at the Al Hirschfeld

HAIR WAVES
By ROGER B. HARRIS
Published January 1 2009

  Eden Espinosa/Ph: Sara Krulwich

The Public Theater in partnership with co-lead producers Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel will present Hair on Broadway, with previews starting at the Al Hirschfeld on March 6. The opening is set for March 31. (Last summer, the Public staged Hair at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, where it had played to packed houses). Elizabeth McCann, who had previously been announced as a lead producer, will continue to work on it.

It's also been announced that Eden Espinosa will play Sheila in the revival. Other cast announcements will be made in the near future. Directing the production will be Diane Paulus, who directed the Delacorte Hair.

Hair has a book and lyrics by James Rado and the late Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot.

When the show opened at the Biltmore on April 29, 1968, its cast included Lynn Kellogg, Melba Moore, Shelley Plimpton, Sally Eaton, Diane Keaton as well as Rado and Ragni. With the Vietnam War raging, the production struck a responsive chord with audiences with its make love, not war message Several songs from the show have become classics, such as "Good Morning Starshine," "Easy to be Hard," "I Got Life," "Hair," and "Aquarius."
