“HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical”
The York College Theatre Department will perform HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical this weekend. Let the sunshine in! It’s 1968 on the Lower East Side of New York City and the youth of America struggle to understand themselves in a nation corrupted by oppression, greed and senseless brutality. Join them as they rebel against the status quo, speak out for civil rights, aid in the war of resistance and enlist in the sexual revolution. Come and rejoice as song, dance and love ultimately trumps hate. This free production will be performed at 7 p.m. on May 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. For more information, call (718) 262-2412.
