TEL AVIV - The U.S. musical Hair opened recently - sung and spoken in Hebrew by an Israeli cast. The show was produced by Orgad Vardimon, together with non-Israelis Michael Hirst and Jean Leyris. The show was translated and adapted into Hebrew by Ehud Manor and directed by Patrick Garland.
The musical is playing daily before full houses at the Oasis Theater in Ramat-Gan. CBS-Israel rush-released an album with the Israeli cast, complete with booklet containing the lyrics in Hebrew. The album has competition from the original Broadway cast LP on RCA which was released two years ago.
