Current student, Ari Rodriguez directs Hair this March at The Connelly Theater for his directing thesis.
The pioneering rock-musical, with a book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot, made its debut in 1967 at the Public Theater. The original production—rift with profanities, drug-references, nudity, and flowers—tells the story of a group of anti-war hippies living in New York. Hit songs from the show include “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine,” and “Let the Sunshine In.”
Tickets for Hair are free with any CUID, $15 for General Admission, and $5 for Seniors; they can be purchased here. Performances are at the Connelly Theatre, 220 East 4th Street, at 8 pm on March 29-31 and at 3 pm and 8 pm on April 1.
