Diane Paulus’ Hair
Hair With a score that includes such enduring musical numbers as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius,” and of course “Hair,” the musical of the same name depicts the birth of a cultural movement that changed America forever. The production follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited hippies during the Vietnam War who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love, but who live in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality. With all the political unrest going on around the globe, Diane Paulus’ revival of the play – which opened this week at Boston’s Colonial Theatre – feels strikingly relevant today, some 40 years after it first opened on Broadway. Diane Paulus – who we know around here as the artistic director at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge is also is the director of the 2009 Tony Award winning revival of Hair playing at the Colonial Theatre, through April 10 and she joins us.
