The Tony Award-winning revival of the Gerome Ragni-James Rado-Galt MacDermot musical Hair ended its Broadway run June 27 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.
Directed by Tony Award nominee Diane Paulus, 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, where it opened to rave reviews March 31, 2009. The revival recouped its initial investment of $5.76 million in August 2009. Upon its closing, Hair will have played 29 preview performance and 519 regular performances.
