Featuring a timeless score by Staten Island’s own Galt MacDermot, with book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, Wagner’s HAIR is directed by Broadway veteran Darren Lee (National Tour The King and I) with music direction by David Sisco (WCT’s La Cage aux Folles).

HAIR celebrates the 50th anniversary of its Broadway premiere and the Sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat the show features popular anthems like “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In,” “Good Morning, Starshine” and the title anthem. HAIR reminds us of such ideals as peace, love and acceptance – and what it means to be young and believe you can change the world.

HAIR features Kevin Atwater (Claude), John Drinkwater (Berger), Sophia Tzougros (Sheila), Bailey Claffey (Ronny), Sabrina Kalman (Jeanie), Hadly Patterson (Crissy), Tyler Ross (Hud), Remy Barson (Margaret Mead), Travis Harley (Dionne) and members of The Tribe – Miranda Abbott, Jamie Baio, Gabrielle Baker, Savannah Beckford, Margot Bergeron, Erin Damers, David Dines, Cassandra Dougherty, Matthew Drinkwater, Kimberly Friedman, Scott Hoke, Dana Kluczyk, Kyra Lee, DeVonte McCray, Anne Elizabeth Miele, Ryan Moroney, Ben Murasso, Cynedra Osinaike, Kristine Palka, Troy Rood, and Garrett Toole.
