The Vaults, on London’s Southbank, will transform into a fully immersive 60s venue, this autumn for the 50th anniversary of hippy musical Hair
Hope Mill Theatre’s production of the iconic tribal rock musical, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle (who is cuurently the assistant dircetor on An American In Paris), transfers from the award wining Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester, to London from Wednesday 04 October for a strictly limited run.
It’s 1967 and a New York hippy commune live a wild, colourful, free, sexually liberated life.
Yearning to change the world, questioning authority and the American flag, these beautiful people join in protest and song – under the shadow of war.
So 50 years later, little has changed!
Hair features classic hit songs: Aquarius, Let the Sun Shine In and Good Morning Star Shine.
The HAIR immersive 60’s experience will entertain audience both before and after the show with food, late night bar and a programme of special events including: club nights, live bands, guest appearances, beat poets, midnight film nights of iconic 60’s movies, 60’s art and photography exhibits and a special Gala Night on 17 October, celebrating the actual opening off-Broadway of Hair 50 years ago.
