THE SMASH BROADWAY REVIVAL COMES TO
THE BUELL THEATRE FROM OCTOBER 4 - 16

The 2009 Tony Award-winning Musical Revival HAIR: THE AMERICAN TRIBAL LOVE-ROCK MUSICAL, will play The Buell Theatre for a limited engagement running Tuesday, October 4 – Sunday, October 16.  Tickets for HAIR are currently on sale and can be purchased at www.denvercenter.org or by calling 303.893.4100.

With a score including such enduring musical numbers as “Let the Sun Shine In,” Aquarius,” “Hair” and “Good Morning Starshine,” HAIR depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the 60’s and 70’s that changed America forever.   The musical follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War.  As they explore sexual identity, challenge racism, experiment with drugs and burn draft cards, the show resonates with an irresistible message of hope more than 40 years after it first opened on Broadway.

HAIR won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival as well as the Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical. HAIR was also nominated for an additional seven Tony Awards including Best Direction, Best Choreography, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design. The cast recording was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

Directed by Diane Paulus and choreographed by Karole Armitage, HAIR features a book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot.

The New York Times says "Diane Paulus's THRILLING, EMOTIONALLY RICH production delivers INTENSE, UNADULTERATED JOY,” Time Out New York says "HAIR SPEAKS TO A WHOLE NEW GENERATION!” and The Washington Post calls it “IRRESISTIBLE…THE BEST VERSION YET!”

The HAIR national tour is produced by The Public Theater (Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director; Joey Parnes, Interim Executive Director) Nederlander Productions, Inc., Carl Moellenberg/Wenlarbar Productions, Rebecca Gold/Myla Lerner, Rick Costello, Joy Newman & David Schumeister, Paul G.
