Love will steer the stars Friday evening at Eisenhower Auditorium. The touring Broadway production of Hair, the classic rock musical that has won millions of hearts since its debut more than four decades ago, brings its messages of peace and love to Penn State for a performance at 7:30 p.m.
This tour of Hair is based on the 2009 Broadway production, which earned the Tony Award for best revival of a musical.
Tickets are still available for the April 12 show, which features hit songs such as 'Let the Sun Shine In," "Aquarius," "Hair" and "Good Morning Starshine."
A Washington Post critic describes the revival as "irresistible. The best version yet."
"Hair feels utterly of the moment in its power to move us," writes a Bloomberg News reviewer. "There's nothing like it."
The show follows a group of charismatic, free-spirited young people who passionately preach a lifestyle of pacifism and free love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality.
Parents and guardians take note: Hair includes a dimly lighted 20-second scene with non-sexual nudity.
The show is audio described, which is especially helpful to patrons with sight loss, at no extra charge to ticket holders.
Artistic Viewpoints, an informal discussion featuring Hair Company Manager Mark Johnson, is offered in Eisenhower one hour before the show and is free for ticket holders. Seating for Artistic Viewpoints is limited.
