Synopsis

The genesis, life and renaissance of HAIR, the most revolutionary musical of its time, a poetic and explosive condensation of the spirit of the 60’s.

At the origin of the musical are the inventive authors of the book and lyrics, James Rado and Gerome Ragni, and the brlilliant composer Galt MacDermot.

Today James Rado directs a young troupe in rehearsing the musical. Their work reveals the social and political relevance of the musical now more than ever, as they experience it against the backdrop of the Iraq War.

Featuring actors Keith Carradine, Melba Moore, Ben Vereen; directors Milos Forman and Tom O’Horgan; producer Michael Butler and authors Jim Rado and Galt MacDermot, as well as a tribute to deceased author Gerome Ragni.
