Hair has recently been given an overhaul by its director, Tom O'Horgan, and the results are wild. Unique, in that it takes on the collective character of its tightly knit troupe, the show has had a personality which has ranged from militant to raunchy to freaky. Currently, the mood is joy, with strong undertones of sweet, and it feels like a whole new show. the level of professionalism is higher then it's been since the show's opening, and the cast fairly sparkles with well-coordinated dancing bodies and exceptional singing voices, like the knockout one belonging to Delores Hall. Alan Braunstein and Larry Marshall give stand-out performances, but the entire cast is very up, very together, and altogether engaging.
