Hair Today, Here Tomorrow

It may be 40 years since it opened on Broadway, but Hair still plays at theaters around the world and remains one of the most popular musicals. A Polish version of Hair will be staged at Warsaw’s Kongresowa Hall Nov. 18.

The musical had its world premiere at the end of the 1960s. A decade later, film director Milos Forman made a movie adaptation which differed significantly from the original stage production, but it is the movie that the music and songs from Hair owe their popularity to.

Back in the 1970s, the musical was regarded as controversial, with scenes of a burning American flags, nudity and numerous references to drugs.

Hair draws its power from the score, its affirmation of freedom and its rejection of constraints such as those imposed by the authorities on citizens. Its depiction of how people give up on their dreams and ideals without a struggle as they enter adulthood is still relevant.

The Polish version of the legendary musical has been produced by the Capitol theater in Wrocław, considered one of Poland’s best musical theaters. The show is directed by Konrad Imiela, an actor, director and composer and since 2006, the managing and artistic director of the Capitol theater.
