HAIR

First, the bad news: Although James Rado, Gerome Ragni, and Galt MacDermot were kick-ass songwriters back in the day, they were mediocre astrologists at best. It's now generally accepted that the Age of Aquarius didn't dawn in 1967, when the trio dreamed up the first rock musical, Hair. (Given various calculation methods, some astrologers claim it started as early as 1447, while a few are fond of 2012; others say check back around 2600 A.D.) The good news? Theatre in the Park is reviving the original counterculture classic that gave the world sodomy and hashish—or songs with those one-word titles, at least—performed by Diane Petteway's orchestra and a cast directed by Ira David Wood III. —Byron Woods
