I just received word that Hair, the Musical will be offering "discount" tickets for many performances this Spring of 2009.
Hair originally played Off Broadway in 1967 and transferred to Broadway in 1968, playing over 1700 performances. It was revived for a short run and played in New York's Central Park in the summer of 2008.
Hair was the musical that created theater history by bringing Rock n' Roll to the Broadway stage. The story tells of the 1960's "hippie" generation by following a group of young adults living in New York City that struggle for personal as well as generational identity. It tells of the younger generations views about the Vietnam War, drugs, sexuality and teenage pregnancy issues of the times.
This production contains scenes that "briefly" depict profanity, nudity and the simulation of drug use. Hair may not be appropriate for a younger theatergoer.
Hair features some of the most popular song ever written. The score includes "Good Morning Starshine", "Aquarius", "Let The Sunshine In" and many more that you will remember from days gone by. I know I sure will.
Hair will be playing shows everyday except for Monday's as it begins its open ended engagement in New York. The show will play the Al Hirschfeld Theater located at 302 West 45th Street.
Although opening night on Broadway is scheduled for March 31, 2009, Applause Theater Service in New York City is offering special "insider discounts" for most performances through May 10, 2009. If the show opens to the rave reviews it is expected to receive, the discount offer may not be available. The shows producer wants to get the full price so it might make sense to give Applause a call now if you think Hair might be the show you want to see.
The Applause Broadway ticket agency is open seven days a week. Their local phone is 212-307-7050 or you can call toll free at 800-451-9930.
