"Hair" is a joyous celebration of youth and a poignant journey through the tumultuous '60s.
The musical tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active "age of Aquarius" hippies living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. They struggle to balance their lives, loves and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. The musical's profanity, depiction of the use of illegal drugs, sexuality, irreverence for the American flag, and nude scene caused much controversy when it arrived on Broadway in 1968.
"Hair" is staged at 3 p.m. April 27 at Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St. Tickets, $20 to $59, are at 360-734-6080 and mountbakertheatre.com.
