HAIR 30th Anniversary Celebrations
HAIR 30th Anniversary (by Michael Butler, updated June 11, 1999) (UPDATED!)
Michael Butler, the original Broadway producer of the Musical Masterpiece "HAIR", announced today that, in cooperation with the authors James Rado and Galt MacDermot the theatrical revival of "HAIR" will be moved to open in the spring of 2001. The play is currently scheduled to be presented in a Theatrical Festival format, which will feature an atmosphere of colorful tents and street scenes reminiscent of the 60's.
This strategic move is designed to make way for a special presentation to launch in the spring of 2000. According to plan, this should pave the way for a very long run of "HAIR" in its original theatrical form.
Michael Butler comments, "In order for us to insure a lengthy run of the play, we want to introduce a new generation to the musical aspects of the show. This environment will only serve to enhance the play version and will bridge the generation gap between the older audience who loved the show and the younger kids".
Mr. Butler will now commence production on another play to open in the spring of 2000 in The Tribe Theater Festival.
For more information please see Michael's website.
Audition information and a tentative schedule are located on the Current Productions page.

Our small, as yet un named, theatre troop in Santa Cruz California is attempting to perform Hair, and our goal is to put this on next year and what we desperatly need is backing by a large company that can see that supporting these aspiring youths would benefit so many and do a lot of good for these young adults. The ages of the cast range from 15 to 18 years of age. my names Dan. peace, love, i'm out (EMAIL: [email protected])

"Tribute" Recording (by Michael Butler, posted September 16, 1996)
Mark Petracca ([email protected]) and I ([email protected]) are working on a recording of HAIR songs using artists of the day. The biggest problem is finding a good distributor. The term "Tribute" is a dirty word in the industry, because most "Tribute" recordings have not done well. We feel that HAIR, because of its universal following and timelessness is an exception, but don't use the "t" word.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated by both of us.
