The Hollywood Bowl's production of the rock musical Hair plays the famed outdoor venue Aug. 1-2 at 8 PM and Aug. 3 at 7:30 PM. Adam Shankman directs and choreographs.

The production features the talents of Kristen Bell as Sheila, Hunter Parrish as Claude, Amber Riley as Dionne, Jenna Ushkowitz as Jeanie, Beverly D’Angelo as Mom, Sarah Hyland as Chrissy, Mario as Hud, Jonah Platt as Woof, Benjamin Walker as Berger and Kevin Chamberlin as Dad.

The limited engagement is conducted by Lon Hoyt. Zach Woodlee serves as associate director and associate choreographer.

In an earlier statement Shankman said, "I’m over the moon about the cast we are assembling. The talent that I witnessed throughout the auditioning and overall casting process has been both mind blowing and deeply humbling. I’m in love with all of them. I can’t wait to get in there with everyone and rock the Bowl this summer, in ways that have never been done there before."

Hair has book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot.



"From its stunning Broadway premiere in 1968," according to the Hollywood Bowl, "Hair 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' – that have become ingrained in pop culture. Audiences will celebrate this groundbreaking American journey as we 'Let the Sunshine In.'"

Tickets can be purchased in-person at the Hollywood Bowl box office, online at HollywoodBowl.com and via credit card phone order at (323) 850-2000.
