Here are a few thoughts I had while watching Hair on Broadway with gorgeous blogger La Belette Rouge last week.

  • Oh, young people, you are so annoying with your crazy outfits, personal hedonism disguised as political activism, and constant requests for parental money!
  • Did hippies really wear lace-front wigs?
  • If Prada makes an outrageously expensive copy of that purple dress, I will be first in line to buy it.
  • Why is the American Idol guy with the outrageously defined abs hidden in the back row during the nude scene?
  • I can’t believe it took me two years to buy tickets to this play.
  • LET’S GET UP ON STAGE AND DANCE!!!!*

Cast members handed out this flyer during the performance.

*We did.

  7. You know, I’ve never seen “Hair” and I’ve always wanted to. It looks like a good time to me. I know a bunch of the songs from it and always meant to check it out somewhere. In fact, all my years in NYC and I only saw Broadway plays maybe twice. Yikes.

    P.S. I just burned my draft card like it said, all is well. No Vietnam for me. (huh?)

      His abs were SO distracting. No one had abs like that in the ’60s. No one has abs like that NOW except for Hollywood peeps! I kept staring at his abs. They were like a not-talented version of Sam Waterston’s eyebrows. Sam’s eyebrows are still the leader in body parts.

  9. We actually saw this ‘back in the day’ and still listen to the original cast recording, if you can believe it! It’s so cool you and LBR went to it together, it sounds like you two had a grand time when she visited.

    So did I! I loved that show! I saw it London less than a month ago when the cast was here, do you know if it’s the same cast back in NY now? Indicator: the guy playing Berger is seriously swoony. I was like a metre away from him on stage, too! Ahaha xx

  11. drollgirl says:

    well, it seems as if you liked it!

    i take it this is different than the john waters movie hairspray? hopefully it was as entertaining.

    and please forgive my cluelessness! we west coast folks don’t get to the theatre much! :)

      Why has no one thought of a Hair/Hairspray double feature before? You’re a genius! (And yes, they are very different but both probably better with drugs.)

  12. I am confused with the lace front wigs. When you wear them do you keep the lace over your face? I think I must be missing something here. I don’t understand why you would want to do that. Please fill me in. Thanks Xxxx

    I loved this play. I grew up on the music and seeing it live with fabulous. I ran up on stage with my Mom and sang my heart out. It was one of the best things we ever did together. Need to go back and revisit the purple dress.

    Glad you liked it! I’ve been thinking of going, but there’s too many other shows I want to see! What’s a girl to do???

  19. stacy says:

    Oh, this is funny! Did you two gals paint your faces with peace signs and flowers? Did you dance in bare feet? And were you wearing bras???

  20. Did you smoke pot and bring something to suck???

    Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog!

  24. I never saw Hair. Glad you enjoyed it, I’ve heard good things. I’m actually trying to go see The Adams Family soon… I always Loved the movie and shows. They’re a bunch of odd balls.

    I saw some major lace-front action in the new Robin Hood movie. Like you could SEE the lace crosshatch. I secretly think of them as Travolta Wigs.
