HAIR, the first true rock musical on Broadway, is the year-end musical of Repertory Philippines’ (Rep) 2017 season. It will run from Nov. 17 to Dec. 17 at the Onstage Theater, Greenbelt 1, Makati City.

Set in the tumultuous 1960s, the story follows native Oklahoma farm boy Claude, who meets the energetic, irrepressible tribe of Central Park hippies on his way to enlist in the US Army. This free-spirited tribe, led by the charismatic Berger, inspires Claude to rebel against the war, his parents, and society, and to assert love, peace and freedom.

From its groundbreaking use of rock music in theater to its fearless depiction of the decade’s stark realities – from the bohemian underground, the sexual revolution, and the violent anti-war movement – Hair is an iconic product of its time, and continues to be a relevant piece of theater up to today.

Hair – whose classic hits include “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius,” and “Good Morning Starshine” – won the 1969 Grammy Award for Best Score from An Original Cast Show Album, while its 2009 Broadway revival earned the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

In Rep’s production, Markki Stroem alternates with Topper Fabregas as Claude with George Schulze as Berger, Caisa Borromeo as Sheila, and a stellar cast of young performers. Chris Millado directs the grand musicale with Ejay Yatco as musical director.

Tickets are available through Rep (843-3570) or TicketWorld (891-9999,
