COSTA MESA - The Tony Award-winning musical, "Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical," will play the Orange county Performing Arts Center for a limited engagement beginning Jan. 25.Tickets start at $20 and go on sale starting Sunday. With a score that includes musical numbers such as "Let the Sunshine In," "Aquarius," "Hair" and "Good Morning Starshine," "Hair" depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the '60s and '70s that changed America forever. The musical follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War. As they explore sexual identity, challenge racism, experiment with drugs and burn draft cards, the show "resonates with an irresistible message of hope more than 40 years after it first opened on Broadway." "Hair" won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival as well as other awards. The cast recording was also nominated for a Grammy Award.
