Many people, that know that I work for TCR, ask me.. “What do you think of the show.”
My common response is, “I let everyone make up their own decision, I don’t rate shows.” The reason I usually tell people this is that, most shows are so-so and just because I don’t like ‘em, doesn’t mean that others won’t. So I try to make sure that everyone makes up their OWN mind.
This show, however, I have to put in my two cents. Hair as a show I’ve never seen, I’ve seen bits and pieces of the movie, but it never compelled me to watch it any further.
For those of you who don’t know, HAIR is a show about Hippies, drugs, love and war. Very appropriate for the time it was create, the last 60′s.
From the time I heard that HAIR was going to be performed at TCR, I’ve wanted to do it. However with several problems throughout the year, I fell out of TCR’s volunteer pool for a few months, and was unsure if I’d be able to run the show. Luckily I was allowed in to be the LBO for this show. I’ve had a lot of fun on this show. The songs are done very very well with G and his band, and the cast. They are having a lot of fun with the show and it does come off that way. I do wish that I was working ON stage, but the lights are just as fun. There are a lot of light cues and it’s a lot of fun.
I would recommend that EVERYONE go and see this show, if not see it twice. This is an awesome show and the cast deserves high praise for how they are playing the show.
The stage has been reworked, went from a flat stage to a raked stage as it did in theatre’s past. When walking on this stage, it’s pretty hard to keep your balance and the cast does well dancing on the raked stage.
I have got to say, this has been the most fun I’ve had on a TCR show in a very long time. The cast is wonderful, the camaraderie is awesome and the show is BOSS.. SEE IT!
