Commentaire: This was an updated production, moving the setting from Vietnam in the 1960s to the current Iraq War, and updating LBJ to George Bush, etc. A second nude scene reproduced the notorious human pyramid photos of Abu Ghraib. However, this updating made no real sense: a musical about the lost “love and peace” generation became one about brash layabouts refusing to grow up; Claude was no longer the hapless victim of a policy forcing young men into the killing fields, rather he now volunteers for the army. It was generally felt that “Hair was truly a period piece which belonged in the 1960s, and this attempt at updating it did not really work. However, it was agreed the show still has one of the best musical scores to come out of that decade, well worth hearing again.  (plus)
