"Hair,'' which just wrapped up a run at Boston's Colonial Theatre on Sunday, will return to Broadway this summer, it was announced today.
The Broadway production will feature the performers from the national touring production that Boston audiences saw, including Paris Remillard as Claude and Steel Burkhardt as Berger.
Diane Paulus, the director of "Hair'' (and the artistic director of the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge), said in a statement: "Taking 'Hair' across America has deepened the show in ways I could never have imagined. The tribe that is coming back to Broadway has traveled the country together. They are a true tribe. For me, they are the 'best of' cast _ original Broadway company members, people who joined us for our London run, and the youngest new cast members who joined the tour and will now be making their Broadway debut.''
Preview performances of "Hair'' will begin on July 5 at the St. James Theatre. Opening night is slated for July 13.
During its previous incarnation on Broadway, "Hair'' was a substantial hit and nabbed the 2009 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
