Revival of "Hair" is Amazing!

What a fabulous night at the theatre. "Hair" the musical is certainly the most fun I've had at any show this season! Where did it come from? I mean no one, I don't think, expects this show to succeed. After seeing the show last night at the Al Hirschfeld theatre, I think it's going to be the big hit of the season both critically and at the box office. The audience went nuts! Everyone thought that this years Tony for Best Revival would go to either Guys and Dolls(terrible reviews) or West Side Story(which opens tonight and I don't think the critics will be very kind, I was disappointed), but my feeling is that "Hair" will easily win Best Revival and hopefully the director will win as well. This show is not easy to stage and she does so brilliantly and uses every inch of the theatre to its maximum potential.

Everything from the amazing lighting, incredible sound and band on stage to the unbelievable cast. I went into the show having never seen a production of it nor have I seen the movie. I knew a few of the great songs of course, but I wasn't expecting much from it. Boy was I wrong. I couldn't take the smile off my face and I was rockin and rollin in my seat. I even got a hug from one of the hippie girls. Without giving anything away, this show has the audience up and dancing at the end and no one wanted to leave the theater! I left on a high without using the drugs! There is some strong language and sexual content(including some full frontal nudity at the end of the first act), but it's done tastefully and I think its fine for mature teens.

Believe me when I say, you'll have a blast at this high energy show! DO NOT wait to get your tickets to this show. Because after it opens to great reviews and word of mouth spreads, you may be in for a long wait for tickets. Get them now, trust me. Call an Applause Sales Expert now at 800-451-9930!!
