Ticket demand has prompted producers of the new Broadway production of Hair to unveil the show three days earlier than previously announced.
Strong sales and a demand, producers said on Dec. 5, prompted the change in schedule. Previews for the rock musical's revival will now begin three days earlier — on Feb. 10, 2009 — at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. The official opening remains March 5, 2009. (Previews were previously announced to begin on Feb. 13.)
Tickets for the upcoming Broadway production of Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical, a capacity-crowd, critical and popular hit this past summer at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, will go on sale to the general public beginning Dec. 6, and can be purchased by calling Tele-charge at (212) 239-6200, or on-line at www.telecharge.com.
The musical's producers are The Public Theater and Elizabeth Ireland McCann. Oskar Eustis is artistic director of The Public Theater; Andrew D. Hamingson is executive director.
