A Star Shines Bright

Throughout my years with HAIR, with all of us who have performed, lived and loved HAIR, one person stood out. If there was ever a personification of the spirit we are devoted to, that person was Leo Lunser.

As said before every time I heard or thought of Leo, I got warm all over. I can just visualize the last time I saw him, bringing that lovely aura to our re-union.

Leo has passed on. Our world is diminished, bit there is a light out there. Pick a star and think of Leo.

Rest In Peace and Love, Our Friend

    You have the same memories I have of Leo Michael… I received an email as I often did not so long ago just to keep in touch.

    I will find the brighest star in the sky for that will be Leo.. though I cannot help but feel really sad.

    Ditto Michael… “Rest in Peace and Love, Our Friend”

    Here is a link to Leo’s obituary in the Portland (ME) Press Herald:


    There is a wonderful photos of him accompanying it.

    Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lunser in person, I have heard so many interesting and laudatory comments about his HAiR productions that I very much wanted to see one. Alas, now that he is no longer with us, that dream cannot be realized. I, too, will miss him.

    Actually you can if you ever make it out to the HAIR Archives. We have one of Leo’s productions in film in our video collection. It was done on a minimal budget, in a field, and it has more spirit and tribal feeling than many other productions I have seen over the years.
