Producers are making 100 tickets available beginning at 1 PM that day at the St. James Theatre box office. Fans are encouraged to dress in hippie attire. Cast members will also select the two best-dressed male and female fans, who will win a walk-on in a future Broadway performance of Hair.

The Broadway engagement is a summer stop on the current national tour of Hair, which launched in the fall of 2010. Hair will officially open July 13 for a run through Sept. 10. The tour is scheduled to continue across the U.S. following the Broadway return.

The revival of Hair began life in 2007 as a special 40th anniversary concert staging at the Delacorte Theater. In 2008 the Public mounted Hair as part of Shakespeare in the Park, where the run was extended three times. The production transferred to Broadway's Al Hirschfeld Theatre March 31, 2009, and concluded in June 2010. A London production opened April 14 at the Gielgud Theatre and concluded in September 2010.

Tony Award nominee Diane Paulus directs the production, which has choreography by Karole Armitage.

The cast includes Steel Burkhardt as Berger, Paris Remillard as Claude, Matt DeAngelis as Woof, Kaitlin Kiyan as Crissy, Darius Nichols as Hud, Kacie Sheik as Jeanie, London cast member Phyre Hawkins as Dionne and Central Park cast member Caren Lyn Tackett as Sheila.
