Storyline

A look backwards, using contemporary interviews and archival footage, at "Hair" the musical, a theatrical and cultural phenomenon in the 1960s and 1970s. The documentary is arranged, loosely, around themes: the context of its creation, friendships among its creators, rehearsals, media coverage, race, sex, politics, backlash, several deaths, drug use leading to dissolution, and an assessment of the play's importance. The commentary comes from a dozen people looking back: creators, producers, actors, and directors of the play and film. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

museum piece
1 March 2010 | by (oklahoma city, oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This film never comes together. It contains some very interesting parts but they remain fragmented because the producers treat the performances -- with one exception -- in the original "Hair" stagings only as fodder for publicity, and certainly not as the beginning of careers for individual artists. The exception is Diane Keaton. The narrator reminds us that she left the role of Sheila, and became famous and successful as an actress. Although some of the interviewees in this brief film also became successful after their "Hair" performances, neither that success nor their artistic development is given any notice. A glaring omission concerns Jennifer Warnes. There are several scenes from the original "Hair" in which Jennifer's presence is central, but she is never identified and no mention is made of her subsequent commercial success as a singer and songwriter ..... in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and during this last decade, let alone any mention of her development as an artist. The new participants in a "Hair" revival were shown only briefly, and their performances seemed to be imitations of the original. The film's narration indicates that "Hair" changed theatre in America, but by its construction this film treats it only as a museum piece.
