I deeply regret posting such a critique. Considering the source it needed being read. I have to agree. This production of Hair lacks soul. For example Berger and Claude acted as if they had just met. When I saw it, in Los Angeles, I had to leave at the intermission. I have tried to say nothing. This is an example of what I have said, "Hair cannot be properly done by commercial producers. It requires a personal, tribal approach from the heart." Professional talent and support can't carry a show like this. Needs a lot of TLC. But it seems to be making money which could be the sole objective. mb
Originally seen in 1967, the controversial stage musical HAIR is being staged in the UK in a brand new production by Playbox Theatre with a young and talented cast to astound and amaze audiences this Spring.
Went to the opening of Randy Bowser's latest. You will recall early this decade he did a great version of HAIR at the same theatre. They have a great pool of talent in Salem, OR and Randy uses them well. I really enjoyed the evening and look forward to a continued involvement. MB
Note that we have been extended to early December.
