Hair

Book and Lyrics by Gerome Ragni & James Rado, Music by Galt MacDermot
Directed by Rubén Polendo

Theater Mitu presents a radical adaptation of the American Musical HAIR (by Rado, Ragni and MacDermot) in collaboration with New York's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts and NYU/Tisch. Re-orchestrated by Todd Almond, this production breathes new relevance to the iconic piece about identity and what it means to be revolutionary. This re-imagining manifests forty head-shaved characters with an idealistic dream of what life should be. Surrounded by an all white landscape and filled with electronica and computerized music, they in turn ask us to actively step out and dream and, furthermore, to make that dream real before time runs out.
