Adam Shankman will direct and choreograph the Hollywood Bowl’s summer staging of the rock musical Hair, which won the Tony and Drama Desk Award for Best Revival of a Musical in 2009.
Shankman is an Emmy-nominated director and choreographer, who directed and choreographed the film adaptations of Hairspray and Rock of Ages; episodes of "Glee" and "Modern Family"; and Prop 8: The Musical.
Hair will be presented Aug. 1-2 at 8 PM and Aug. 3 at 7:30 PM. Casting will be announced at a later date.
Hair, according to the Bowl, "defined the 'rock musical,' exuberantly celebrating the hippie counterculture, anti-war movement and sexual revolution of the 1960s with a rainbow score of hits" – including “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine” and “Easy to be Hard."
