Welcome to Signature Theatre and our production of HAIR. Originally, Signature was set to produce HAIR in the spring of 2020, but we all know what happened then. I am overjoyed to finally bring this iconic musical to our stage.

HAIR was the brainchild of James Rado and Gerome Ragni, two graduates of Washington DC’s Catholic University of America and aspiring young musical theater writers. In 1966 they saw a painting by artist Jim Dine called "Hair" at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the piece inspired them to write a new musical about “the new way men were relating to each other in the 60s.” They started by writing about two best friends, one of whom openly rejected conformity and the other who was still learning who he was. The characters of Claude and Berger were originally played respectively by Rado and Ragni. However, HAIR grew into so much more than a story about the bond between two male friends. It has become a testament to its time. Set to the lively and unforgettable music by Galt McDermot, HAIR may simply seem like a euphoric good time, and while much of it is, it is also a call to arms and a reflection of the tumultuous time when it was written.

HAIR broke all the rules of musical theater convention. The director of the Broadway production, Tom O’Horgan, said that HAIR was “a theatre form whose demeanor, language, clothing, dance, and even its name accurately reflects a social epoch in full explosion.” It put the counterculture on stage in real time—resistance to the Vietnam War, rejection of institutionalized religion, concerns about climate change, new openness about sexuality, and the use of drugs to reach a purer level of consciousness—to name just a few of the issues the piece confronts. When the musical opened at the Public Theatre in 1967 Clive Barnes called it, “an honest attempt to jolt the American musical into the nineteen-sixties . . . a mood picture of a generation dominated by drugs, sex, and the two wars, the one about color and the one about Vietnam.”

While the musical premiered over half a century ago there is so much that speaks to today, even more so than when we’d planned to do the musical four years ago. The last four years proved so transformative that they caused me to completely rethink what it would mean to produce a production of HAIR now. HAIR premiered on Broadway in 1968, one of the most tumultuous and transformational years in American history. 56 years later we are in a moment of immense social and political upheaval and the young people of today are demanding a revolution in thought and breaking free from the constructs set by their parents. In speaking out against injustice, inequality and corruption they dare to imagine a world that is more free and honest. For me, HAIR is not merely a period piece to illuminate a time in our past. There is so much to reflect upon and learn about our present.

Enjoy the show.

“We’re moving toward a new age in ideas and events. We are soon to begin the Age of Aquarius and a young revolution in thought and manner is about to take place."

– An interview with Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, 1967

The Age of Aquarius became a frequently used phrase in the 1960s thanks to the musical HAIR. It is the dawning of a new age of enlightenment and a desire for collective change. An age of harmony, egalitarianism and understanding following the Age of Pisces which valued money, power and control. According to astrology, an age occurs every 2000 years when the sun moves into a new constellation. So, while the popular song from HAIR may have been written over 50 years ago, it still represents a change that is only just beginning in the grand scheme of things.

Change comes with growing pains and the late 1960s was a time of immense social and political upheaval. By 1967, the Vietnam War was in its second decade, almost 500,000 American troops were serving overseas, and the government had to resort to the draft to boost its numbers. For the first time, war was on television and the images on screens showing the massacre of Vietnamese civilians turned many against the conflict. After a decades-long fight, The Civil Rights Act had only just been passed and discrimination and violence were rampant, especially in the South. 1968 saw the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy. The unrest was growing and boiled over at the 1968 Democratic National Convention when a protest against the unpopular establishment nominee devolved into violence and opened the door for a Nixon victory.

In 1967 young Baby Boomers, who were given the name “hippies,” converged in San Francisco to enjoy a culture of peace, free love, freedom of expression and the benefits of hallucinogenic drugs to reach new levels of consciousness. This became known as the Summer of Love. This was not just a groovy, easy-going, fun time as has often been depicted. The youth who flooded San Fransisco were calling for a revolution against society’s rules. They felt that they had no voice in their future and that this wasn’t the America they wanted. The status quo was not working for them: politically or socially. The white-washed,

conformity-driven, conversative 1950s were not the wholesome, idyllic time they had been preached to be, and as students came of age they joined the counterculture movement and rebelled against the narrow-minded constraints placed upon them by their parents. They rejected corrupt and hypocritical religious practices, materialism, racism, sexism, and individualism over collective good. While the Summer of Love fizzled in a few months, the counterculture it birthed continued on, spreading like wildfire through the country. Shortly after the Summer of Love, HAIR premiered on Broadway. The ideas of the Summer of Love had been set loose in mainstream American culture.

Soon all over the country young people were making their ideals known and leading social reform. They gathered for anti-war protests and burned their draft cards to advocate for peace. Because of this the “hippies” were often depicted as anti-American—but to fight for a more equitable society could be considered the ultimate patriotic act, to continue to push for freedom for all. America, after all, was a country founded on revolution and to escape a system that our forefathers found repressive. Their goal was to create a more harmonious and happier country for all – something better, freer and more honest. Were they successful in their pursuit? It is undeniable that our world has improved in ways that can be traced back to the counterculture of the 1960s. But with all progress comes the threat of backsliding.

50 years later, the United States is again at a place of social and political upheaval. The divisiveness of political parties has grown to a fever-pitch. Despite nearly 50 years of precedent, Roe v. Wade was overturned by a conservative majority court. Climate change has arrived, and the consequences could be dire. Income inequality has exploded to the largest level since the Gilded Age and inflation means that the dollar does not go as far. A global pandemic disrupted the world and separated loved ones. There is a dangerous decline in democracy and a rise in global authoritarianism—and an increase in violence and repression. The fight for racial equality is ongoing in our country while brutal and unthinkable violent conflicts play out around the globe. And once again young people are raising their voices. In an Atlantic article, Derek Thompson said, “Younger generations have been the force behind equality movements such as Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, #AbolishICE, and Medicare for All, not only because they’re liberal, and not only because they have the technological savvy to organize online, but also because their experience in this economy makes them exquisitely sensitive to institutional abuses of power, and doubly eager to correct it.”

This new generation has played a critical role in leading social reform, much like the counterculture of the 1960s. How will the protests made by the youth of today affect the world in 50 years? Only time will tell, but as long as young people embrace the revolutionary spirit of the Age of Aquarius, progress has only one way—forward.

Gerome Ragni (1935-1991) From Pittsburgh PA, Gerome was the youngest of a large family with six sisters and two brothers. After four years as a medic in the United States Air Force, he began acting and was recognized by winning the Barter Theatre Award as Outstanding Young Actor. He appeared on Broadway in John Gielgud's Hamlet featuring Richard Burton, and he starred off-Broadway in The Knack. He was involved with The Open Theater (which he named) studying experimental theater techniques with Nola Chilton and Joseph Chaikin. With James Rado he cocreated the American Tribal Love-Rock Musical HAIR, and their lyrics were set to music by Galt MacDermot. A dynamic stage and life presence, he originated the role of Berger in HAIR. On his own, he authored the Broadway musical Dude, with score by MacDermot. He teamed up with another composer, Steve Margoshes, who wrote the music for the Ragni opus Jack Sound and His Dog Star Blowing His Final Trumpet on the Day of Doom. Soon thereafter, he and Rado rejoined forces to collaborate on a new musical they called Sun. A gifted actor and prolific writer and painter, he originated "paper-napkin art" and he wrote a volume of dynamic poetry under the pen name Virginia Miller. He passed in 1991. His son, Erick Ragni, is an innovative architect.

James Rado (1932-2022) was an actor, songwriter and co-creator of the characters, story, dialogue and lyrics of HAIR. His daydream, since he was a teenager, was to write a Broadway musical. He taught himself how to write lyrics from intense study of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, etc., as well as pop music from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. In college, he wrote the music and lyrics for two shows: Interlude at the University of Maryland and Cross Your Fingers at the Catholic University of America. After a two-year gig in the U.S. Navy, in 1956 he moved to New York to be an actor. Five years later he got his first Broadway break when the famed director and teacher Lee Strasberg plucked him

from an acting class for a small part in June Havoc’s Marathon ’33 starring Julie Harris. This led to a string of acting roles in Luther, Generation, The Knack and, in 1964, Hang Down Your Head And Die, where he met fellow actor Gerome Ragni. He told Ragni about his daydream of creating a Broadway musical and proposed that they team up to write a show about the hippies and the antiwar movement which was happening all around them. Ragni came aboard with some of his exciting experimental poetry. In 1966, in the midst of writing HAIR, Rado got a leading role as Richard the Lionhearted in the James Goldman play The Lion in Winter, starring Robert Preston, Rosemary Harris and Christopher Walken. By 1967, Rado and Ragni had a presentable script of HAIR, which they gave to the producer Joseph Papp. Papp liked what he read and decided HAIR would be the inaugural production of his newly-founded New York Shakespeare Festival at The Public Theater on New York City’s Lower East Side. HAIR opened on Broadway in the spring of 1968 and starred Rado and Ragni in the lead roles. The rest is theatrical history. In his later years, Rado continued working on two other pieces: American Rainbow and Sun

Galt MacDermot (1928-2018). Two-time Grammy and Tony Award-winning composer Galt MacDermot is best known for the music he wrote for the Broadway scores of HAIR and Two Gentlemen of Verona. He garnered his first Grammy for the song "African Waltz" in 1960. His work spans the gamut of performing arts: musicals, ballet scores, film scores, chamber music, the Anglican liturgy, orchestral, poetry, drama accompaniments, band repertory and opera. His work encompasses a wealth of musical genres, crossing the boundaries of jazz, folk, funk, gospel, reggae and classical styles. The son of a Canadian diplomat, Galt was born and raised in Montreal. He received a Bachelor of Music from Cape Town University, South Africa. Based on his traditional training, he wrote his own arrangements. He moved to New York in

1964 and, three years later, wrote the music for the landmark Broadway production HAIR, which he later adapted for the screen. He formed the New Pulse Band in 1979, which features his original music played by some of the world’s greatest musicians, including Bernard Purdie and Wilbur Bascomb. Galt’s music is consistently sampled by hip hop and rap artists who find his rhythms perfect for setting their lyrics to, as in Run DMC’s Grammy Award-winning "Down With The King" and Billboard’s top chart-buster, "Woo-Hah!! Got You All In Check" by Busta Rhymes. Galt MacDermot wrote more than 3,000 songs over his lifetime. His music is listened to and enjoyed in 179 countries worldwide, and HAIR has been performed constantly since its inception in over 40 countries worldwide. Galt MacDermot is music.

Prior to joining Signature, Boland spent 10 years at Arena Stage in increasingly senior positions, beginning as the Marketing Director and later assuming oversight of the Annual Fund and $125 million Next Stage Campaign as the Director of External Affairs. Her experience also includes six years in fundraising with Roundabout Theatre Company. Boland was a 2016 recipient of the Washington Business Journal’s Women Who Mean Business award.
