Hair: The Musical was created at a time of great civil unrest in the United States. There were struggles and profound change in the anti-war movement, women’s liberation, gay rights, and freedom of speech. The parallels of these changes, questions, and changes to what is happening in our present day society is undeniable. Though the original musical was created in the late 60’s, we are still struggling with these important and vital questions of basic human rights and liberties today. Creating this piece allows us to face these topics in a way that will resonate and challenge a new generation of artists.
