It’s been confirmed that a new bio-musical about the rise to fame of the Bee Gees is in the works, and could be eyeing a place in the West End.

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.
It was also announced that a ‘clothing-optional’ performance of Hair will take place at the venue on 11th November.
