News   PHOTO CALL: Hair Rocks in Rio De Janeiro
James Rado, Gerome Ragni and Galt MacDermot's musical Hair — recently seen on Broadway in the Tony-winning 2009 revival — is currently enjoying a Brazilian staging at the Theater Oi Casa Grande in Rio de Janeiro.

"With a score including such enduring musical numbers as 'Let the Sun Shine In,' 'Aquarius,' 'Hair' and 'Good Morning Starshine,' Hair depicts the birth of a cultural movement in the 60's and 70's that changed America forever: the musical follows a group of hopeful, free-spirited young people who advocate a lifestyle of pacifism and free-love in a society riddled with intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War," according to Broadway production notes. "As they explore sexual identity, challenge racism, experiment with drugs and burn draft cards, the 'tribe' in Hair creates an irresistible message of hope, peace and change that continues to resonate with audiences 40 years later."

Here is a look at the cast:

The production features Hugo Bonemer as Claude, Igor Rickli as Berger, Carol Puntel as Sheila, Karin Hils as Dionne, Letícia Colin as Jeanie, Marcel Octavio as Woof, Reynaldo Machado as Hud Pai de Claude/Tribo: Fernando Rocha and Tatih Köhler as Crissy.

Charles Möeller directs, with choreography by Alonso Barros.
