The Revival Of Hair Wraps Up Its Energetic Run In NYC Before Heading To London's West End For A New Production, Set To Premier On April 14th And Will Feature Most Of The Original Broadway Cast
Broadway Show Heads to London's West End
The energetic original cast of the current Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of the classic '60s counter-culture musical Hair has its final performance at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre today, and then the merry band of hippies will head off to England (London, not Manchester) to open the West End production of the hit show. The London Hair, featuring most of Broadway's original cast, will begin performances on April 1 at the Gielgud Theatre with an official opening set for April 14.
The new Broadway cast of Hair, which will debut at the Hirschfeld on March 9, includes American Idol finalists Ace Young (who was also a replacement in the recent Broadway revival of Grease) as Berger and Diana DeGarmo (a replacement in the Broadway production of Hairspray) as Sheila.
