In lieu of Michael’s discussions of HAIR-related recordings…

…I’d like to dredge up, once again, my favorite of HAIR topics: its ever-changing script. The play has changed so many times that even I can barely remember the script history. Would someone mind commenting on this? Nina?

    One thing I do recall is that Jim reintroduced elements of the Off-Broadway script plot-wise (including the more defined Claude/Sheila/Berger love triangle) and included all new lyrics, including a new verse for “Where Do I Go,” for the CanStage production.

    Jim recently told me that the CanStage rewrites were more scenes that the director wanted to add in than the rewrites he (Jim) has made on the script. He was more pleased with a recent Alaskan production where he had worked with the director.

    There is a new verse to Where Do I Go, as you say, which Jim sang at the birthday party concert in NYC, on April 29th.

    I am not sure what you want to know about Hair’s script history. If you want to ask a more specific question I am happy to try and answer it if I can.

    Webtv, are you Randy Bowser?

    No, Randy isn’t with us these days. Hopefully he will join us again some day.

    Webtv is checking to see whether their users can post here with us. And apparently they can!

    I’d like to know, in general, the history of the HAIR scripts, and in addition, I’d like to know more about the rejected screenplays for the film version that you have.
