5 CT-39, Sherman, CT Phone: (860) 354-3622.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, HAIR, the American Tribal Love Rock Musical, made its world premiere in 1967. HAIR celebrates the sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, longhaired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like "Aquarius," "Good Morning, Starshine," "Hair," "I Got Life," and "Let the Sun Shine." Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, HAIR remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
