‘Hair’ grows on Broadway

Cast and crew celebrates revival's opening

The raucous crowd at Tuesday’s opening night of the “Hair” Broadway revival put on almost as much of a show as the cast.

Helmer Diane Paulus dressed in a brightly patterned dress that matched the show’s late-’60s setting, while Public Theater a.d. Oskar Eustis, in keeping with the personal grooming aesthetics of the flower-power tuner, brandished his own trademark mane — and got it tousled repeatedly by the actors who ran up and down the aisles throughout the show.

Jeffrey Richards, one of the commercial producers partnered with the Public to produce the Broadway transfer, wore an impressive kilt. Also in the crowd were a couple dressed in full Indian regalia and at least one tall, fierce drag queen.

And then at the end of the night, the crowd truly became the show: When the cast invited them up onstage to dance, no one was shy about joining them.
