PHOTO CALL: Central Park to Grow Hair with Groff

News   PHOTO CALL: Central Park to Grow Hair with Groff
Jonathan Groff, Will Swenson, Patina Renea Miller and company will return to Central Park's Delacorte Theater in Hair beginning July 22.

The Public Theater reunites the cast from last summer's 40th anniversary concert for a full Shakespeare in the Park staging. Diane Paulus directs, and Karole Armitage choreographs.

Featuring book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot, Hair is subtitled The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical. The rock musical originally opened in 1967 at The Public Theater and then became the first off-Broadway musical to transfer to Broadway — where it played for 1,873 performances.

Here is a look at last summer's concert cast in action:
