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."

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
