It may be decades since the hippie culture was in its prime, but that era of American history still fascinates many. Proof
of this comes from the popularity of the rock musical Hair, which is based on the hippie culture of the 1960s. Musical fans
in Durham, North Carolina won't want to miss out when this famous theater
show comes to town.
The hippie culture isn't something that can be fully understood or appreciated from the outside. That is why the musical
Hair takes audience inside one hippie tribe. The tribe
longs for a world of peace, love and sexual freedom, but outside forces threaten those ideals. The most imminent threat is
the Vietnam War, which threatens to take their leader overseas.
Another revolutionary aspect of the 1960s was the music of that era. Hair features a score full of classics. Some of the
songs included are "I Believe in Love," "Where Do I Go?," "What a Piece of Work is Man," "Eyes Look Your Last" and, of course,
"Hair." The show in Durham, North Carolina is a chance to hear all of these and more live on stage.
