Adam Shankman has been tapped to helm and choreograph the Hollywood Bowl’s upcoming production of the Tony-winning musical “Hair.”

The Hollywood Bowl will host three performances of “Hair” on Aug. 1-3. Tickets for the 2014 Hollywood Bowl season will be available beginning May 4.

The rock musical first bowed at Broadway’s Biltmore Theatre in 1968.

He began his career as a dancer and choreographer and appeared in musicvideos for Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul. Shankman became a permanent judge on Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance?” in 2009 and was one of the two producers for the 82nd Academy Awards the following year.
