Yup, 'Hair' Still Rocks

As I said in one of my rare rave reviews last May, I absolutely love Hair. So much so, that I went back to see it a second time, which is rare given the cost of Broadway theater tickets (with previous honorees being Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera). The majority of the original cast is still there, and still keeping the energy level to insane heights. They're only there until the end of March, when they'll be replaced by new stars as they depart to open the Hair revival in London. I hope London knows how lucky she is.

I was also lucky enough to win a contest via Twitter a few weeks ago that awarded me with a free copy of the Hair soundtrack on vinyl. So I brought it with me to my second viewing and the cast was kind enough to sign my album. Now if I only had a record player...

Oh, and Will Swenson (who stars as the incorrigible Berger) even posed for a quick photo with me. The picture doesn't do him or me justice (mostly him), but he is truly as lovely as he is talented. He can burn my draft card any time.
