Production photography has been released for the musical Hair, which opens at the Vaults tonight. Hair opened off-Broadway in 1967 before transferring to Broadway the following year, and tells the story of a group of hippie youngsters living in New York. At the time, its songs, which include “Awuarius”, “Three-Five-Zero-Zero” and “Good Morning Starshine”, became anthems for the anti-Vietnam war movement. The musical will transform the Waterloo venue, giving it a fully immersive ‘60s vibe with themed restaurants, bars and shops selling memorabilia including tie dye clothes and the like.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Off-Broadway premiere of Hair, originally billed as the American tribal love-rock musical, at New York's Public Theatre.
