Certain musicals have become classics since they were first released, which is the case with Hair.
The musical tells the story of a politically-minded "tribe" living during the 1960s, and depicts the ups and downs of trying
to live out their liberal ideals. The title of the musical comes from their long hair, which is often criticized but is a
point of pride.
Hair is set in the 1960s, where hippies were distinguished by their bohemian garb and long hair. In Hair, the "tribe" lives
in New York City and is dealing with everything from drug use to the Vietnam War. The story is told through songs like "Aquarius,"
"I Believe in Love," "Don't Put It Down" and, of course, "Hair." It is little wonder that Hair has become a must-see theater event.
Hair deserves a top-notch setting, and it gets just that when it comes to Tampa. It will be staged at the Morsani Hall at the David A.
Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts. The Carol Morsani Hall has a capacity of 2,610, and features a traditionan
horseshoe shape common in opera house construction. The hall was also designed with impeccable sightlines for every seat.
