Editorial Reviews

HAIR, featuring book and lyrics by the late Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot, opened to rave reviews on Broadway March 31, 2009 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Under the direction of Diane Paulus, Hair arrives on Broadway after a run as part of the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park 2008. The cast of the Broadway revival of Hair features Will Swenson as Berger, Tony nominee Gavin Creel as Claude, Sasha Allen as Dionne, Caissie Levy as Sheila, Allison Case as Crissy, Kacie Sheik as Jeanie, Bryce Ryness as Woof, Darius Nichols as Hud, Megan Lawrence as Mother and Andrew Kober as Margaret Mead/Dad. With a score including such enduring musical numbers as "Let the Sun Shine In," "Aquarius," "Hair" and "Good Morning Starshine," Hair depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the `60s and `70s that changed America forever: the musical follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War. As they explore sexual identity, challenge racism, experiment with drugs and burn draft cards, the "tribe" in Hair creates an irresistible message of hope, peace and change that continues to resonate with audiences 40 years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars **Hair** Re-Styled! June 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I didn't think they could successfully recreate the American Tribal Love-Rock Musical "Hair" or that it would catch my interest, but this revival deserves the attention its been getting.

The HAIR (THE NEW BROADWAY CAST RECORDING) soundtrack is phenomenal. It mixes the original music arrangements Hair (Deluxe Edition) (1968 Original Broadway Cast and 1967 off Broadway Cast) with some of the arrangements from the movie Hair: Original Soundtrack Recording - Special Anniversary Edition, into a fresh--but still "hair"--sound. It captures the excitement of the play and it's almost as good as being there.

The highly talented cast especially Gavin Creel, Sasha Allen, Caissie Levy, Kacie Sheik and Will Swenson will no doubt bring the soundtrack to a whole new generation of listeners.

I'm sure fans of the original and movie soundtracks of HAIR will enjoy this revival of it. I sure did, and I've got both previous soundtracks, plus the Deutsche Originalaufnahme Haare (Hair) - the German version of the Broadway show which features Donna Summer. Although I still like the movie vocal arrangement of "Black Boys" and "White Boys" with the duet between the male and female voices--and nobody can touch Cheryl Barnes's version of "Easy To Be Hard"--this new cast and revival of the musical is truly enjoyable.

HAIR comes with a small booklet with liner notes by Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director-The Public Theater and Diane Paulus, Hair's Director.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SUN STILL SHINES IN June 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Hair" opened on Broadway amidst the turmoil dividing the country in 1968 and knocked behind-the-times Broadway on its' ear. "Hair" was a breath of fresh air and it saved Broadway but it nearly destroyed it. Soon a flock of wanna-be Hairs traipsed into town and soon belly-flopped and traipsed out of town. The reason for the belly flop? "Hair" got there first.

Structurally "Hair" was an unwashed mess, more a party than theatre, but what a party it was and the party has started anew and shaken the town again. The wispy thin story, like a single strand of hair involves Claude a young hippie and somewhat leader of his bell-bottomed, love-beaded friends has received his draft notice and that's the story. Will he avoid the draft or will he join the army? Will he? Won't he? Will he? Won't he? He does and the result is tragic. The bulk of the show is ideas, social issues and attitude swirling around like a tornado gone beserk. None of the actors playing the hippies or tribe as their called here, stand-still for a moment and even spill out into the audience, frightening the blue-haired matrons who have strolled in to check out the latest rage.

Gavin Creel sings sweetly as Claude, the would be draft dodger and when you see his picture in the booklet you have to smile and say, "Someone should feed that boy a sandwich or three". Will Swenson as Berger sings well but he lacks the shaggy dog manginess of Gerome Ragni-the original Berger.

What other show could get away with a second act that is 90 percent an extended LSD trip. And come morning when the trip is over, Claude leaves his friends for the army. Soon Claude reappears, hair shaven dressed in army fatigues. The tribe cannot see or hear him even as he calls out to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Recording of a Fantastic Show June 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The New Broadway Cast Recording of "Hair" captures the magic of the current smash
Broadway revival. The ground-breaking show about a tribe of hippies in New York's
East Village contains classics such as "Aquarius," "Good Morning Starshine," "Let
the Sun Shine In," and the title track. The current cast sounds as vibrant as they
do live on stage. Examples include, Sasha Allen's soaring "Black Boys," Will
Swenson's joyous "Donna," Caissie Levy's heartwrenching "Easy to Be Hard" and
Gavin Creel's outstanding "Where Do I Go?" Executive Producer, Bill Rosenfield
along with, Galt MacDermot, Hair's original musical composer, include songs that
weren't on the show's Original Cast Recording, some of the show's dialogue and
both of the show's encores. The current show's Musical Director, Nadia
DiGiallonardo, makes MacDermot's music sound fresher then ever by using top-of-the-
line musicians. Gerome Ragni's and James Rado's lyrics are as relevant as ever on
songs such as "Air"("Welcome, sulphar dioxide/Hello carbon monoxide/The air, the
air is everywhere.") and "I Believe in Love" ("I believe that now is the time/for
all good men/To believe in love.") Their songs are philosophical("What a Piece of
Work Is Man") and provocative ("Sodomy"), but also funny ("My Conviction") and
heartbreaking,("Frank Mills"). The New Broadway Cast Recording of "Hair" reminds
us that not only is this the right time to experience its latest revival but to
also hear its timeless songs.-BobsViews
