'Hair' tour makes stop at E.J. Thomas

Published:

"Hair," the 2009 Tony Award-Winning Best Musical Revival directed by Diane Paulus, will play The Univesity of Akron's E. J. Thomas Hall March 5 and 6, as a part of the 2012-13 Broadway In Akron Season. Tickets for "Hair" are available now at the Thomas Hall ticket office or by phone at 800-745-3000.

With an iconic score including chart-topping hits such as "Let the Sun Shine In," Aquarius," "Hair" and "Good Morning Starshine," the musical energetically depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the '60s and '70s that changed America forever. The musical 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 during the Vietnam War.

While many find this show suitable for young adults (13 and older), parental discretion is advised. There is a dimly lit 20-second scene with nudity that is non-sexual in nature.
