The current Broadway revival of “Hair” will send out a national touring production during the 2010-11 season.
Producers, including the Public Theater, Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel, made the announcement in the run-up to the Tony Award nominations Tuesday. After scoring strong reviews, “Hair” has become one of the season’s top-selling tuner revivals, along with “West Side Story.”
Diane Paulus helms the 1960s flower-power musical, which has book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot. Current Rialto incarnation opened at the Al Hirschfeld Theater in March.
