This is a rare 8" X 10" press photograph of members of the "THE TRIBE" (Karl Richey, Bruce Hyde, James Wigfall and Philip Michael Thomas), the San Francisco cast of the groundbreaking GEROME RAGNI, JAMES RADO and GALT MacDERMOT American Tribal Love-Rock Musical "HAIR" at the Geary Theatre in San Francisco, California. (The production originally opened October 29th, 1967 at New York's Joseph Papp Public Theatre and ran for 49 performances. An overwhelming demand for tickets resulted in a move December 22nd, 1967 to the Cheetah Theatre, a former discotheque on Broadway at 53rd Street, where it ran for an additional 45 performances. The production later opened April 29th, 1968 at the Biltmore Theatre in New York City and ran for 1750 performances. The San Francisco engagement began August 29th, 1969 and ran for over two years.) ..... "HAIR" is a rock musical which was the product of the hippie counter-culture and sexual revolution of the 1960's. Several of its songs became anthems of the anti–Vietnam War peace movement. The musical's profanity, its depiction of the use of illegal drugs, its treatment of sexuality, its irreverence for the American flag, and its nude scene caused much controversy and as a result initially made it difficult to find a home in a Broadway theatre. The show broke new ground in musical theatre by defining the genre of the "rock musical" and utilizing a racially-integrated cast. Hair was conceived by actors JAMES RADO and GEROME RAGNI (both members of the Original Cast). The two actors met in 1964, when they acted together in the Off-Broadway play Hang Down Your Head and Die, and they began writing Hair together in early 1965. The main characters of "Claude" and "Berger" were autobiographical, Rado's "Claude" being the pensive romantic and Ragni's "Berger", the extrovert. Their close relationship, sometimes volatile, is symbolized in the show by the well known ballad "Easy to be Hard". In addition to the two authors, the Original Broadway Cast included a young DIANE KEATON and MELBA MOORE. Other prominent actors and singers who have appeared in productions throughout the U.S. and abroad include JILL O'HARA, TIM CURRY, MEAT LOAF, ELAINE PAIGE, JOE MANTEGNA, PAUL JABARA, BEN VEREEN, KEITH CARRADINE, TED NEELEY, JOBRIATH, JENNIFER WARREN, DAVID PATRICK KELLY, PHILIP MICHAEL THOMAS, DONNA SUMMER, ANDRE DeSHIELDS, PAUL NICHOLAS, SHARON REDD, REG LIVERMORE and RICHARD O'BRIEN. (Reprinted in part from Wikipedia.) The 2009 Broadway revival which opened March 31st, 2009 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre received the Tony Award for "Best Revival of a Musical" .....
