Come to the Moraine Valley Community College’s Dorothy Menker Theatre to see the hit 60’s musical “Hair,” through November 12, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn & Suites Midway Hotel!
If you weren’t alive in the 60s, you’ll love it. If you are alive, travel down memory lane to see one of the first rock operas in pop history! Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, Moraine Valley Academic Theater takes you back to New York 1967, where a group of young hippies explore sex, love, and rock ‘n’ roll while fighting for civil rights and the end of the war in Vietnam.
This exuberant musical about a group of young Americans searching for peace and love in a turbulent time has struck a resonant chord with audiences remaining relevant and entertaining in today’s world. The first great rock musical, it has some of the most rousing and soulful songs ever written for the stage, including Let the Sun Shine In, Good Morning Starshine, Aquarius, and the infectious title song, Hair. Produced for the Broadway stage by Michael Butler. Originally produced by the New York Shakespeare Festival.
