6th Street Playhouse presents HAIR
Performances scheduled for Feb. 12 through March 20
6th Street Playhouse will present a production of HAIR, the tribal love-rock musical, with direction by Aja Gianola-Norris, music direction by Lucas Sherman, and choreography by Rachel Wynne.
HAIR features lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, with music by Galt MacDermot.
Described by Ben Brantley as “a timeless portrait of a movement that changed the world,” HAIR is a glorious rock musical, a joyous celebration of youth, and a poignant journey through a tumultuous 1960s America. This exuberant story about a group of teenagers searching for truth, peace, and love in the Vietnam War era retains its power and relevance 50 years after its original production. HAIR features an eclectic score filled with classic songs including “Aquarius,” “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Hair,” and “Easy to Be Hard.”
6th Street’s production of HAIR features a diverse cast of actor/singers, many of whom are familiar to local audiences, including Gillian Eichenberger, Serena Elize Flores, David Lee Hall, Ezra Hernandez, Keene Hudson, Jamin Jollo, Lindsay John, Tyehimba Kokayi, Nicole MacDonald, Theo Olson, Jourdan Olivier-Verde, Noah Sternhill, and Peri-Zoe Yaldrim-Stanley. Featured performer Lynnea Mackey won a walk-on role in the production in the 6th Street Applause Gala auction.
HAIR previews Thursday, Feb. 12, and runs through Feb. 20, 2022. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m., plus an additional performance on Saturday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m.
