Free Tickets to HAIR this Friday!
HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical will play its final performance on Sunday, June 27 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, having recouped its entire investment and generating a profit, the show’s producers announced today. U.S. audiences will still be able to delight in this Tony Award-winning, landmark production, as it heads from coast-to-coast in its previously announced First National Tour beginning October 2010 in Washington, DC (see attached for schedule of announced cities). Many of the members of the current Broadway ‘Tribe’ and London ‘Tribe’ will take part in the tour.
In the spirit of The Public Theater and as a ‘Thank You’ to the people of New York, the producers of HAIR will be offering 500 FREE tickets to this Friday evening’s 500thperformance. The first five-hundred fans in line at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (302 West 45th Street, NYC) when the box office opens at 10:00 AM on Friday, June 11, will each receive a free ticket to that evening’s performance.
In a statement, Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of the Public Theater said: “It’s been an amazing run. Three years ago we started this revival, free in Central Park, and over the last three years we’ve elected Obama, marched for equality, and HAIR’s message of peace and love has been embraced by hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers. As we bid farewell to New York and head out on the road, we want to thank this community that has given us so much. We started free, and we’re ending free. Thank you New York and hello America.”
