'New look, new Hair'

I love Hair. I'm not sure *now* is the best time for it to come back, if ever, but it's here anyway.

The New York Times says in its review:

This emotionally rich revival of “The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical” from
1967 delivers what Broadway otherwise hasn’t felt this season: the intense,
unadulterated joy and anguish of that bi-polar state called youth.

If you want to get really annoyed, really quickly, listen to this audio slideshow about moving the show from Central Park to the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. You've never heard the word "tribe" so many times in your life -- unless, of course, you've been in Hair and know that's what they call the cult cast.
