Landmark Musical Theatre proudly presents the 50th Anniversary of the Summer Of Love production of HAiR at the Great Star Theatre in San Francisco, August 4-26, 2017.

In addition to the Summer of Love, we also celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the musical HAiR itself, one of the first rock musicals ever to reach Broadway, with a book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, and a glorious musical score by Galt MacDermot.

A product of the hippie counterculture and the social/sexual revolution of the late 1960s, HAiR mirrors what was happening in the United States during that era, in particular, the conflict over the Vietnam War and the use of the draft to conscript young American men to fight the war.

Opening off-Broadway in October 1967 at the Public Theater in Greenwich Village, it quickly moved to Broadway under the auspices of producer Michael Butler and director Tom O'Horgan in April 1968 where it became a huge hit, with concurrent productions running in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and many other cities, both in the United States and worldwide. It closed on Broadway in 1972, after running almost five years and becoming, at the time, the 10th longest running Broadway musical ever.
