In celebration of Hair's 50th anniversary, the Axelrod Performing Arts Center in New Jersey will present Hair in Concert August 15–16 at 8 PM, August 18 at 10 PM, and August 19 at 3 PM.
Soul-pop vocalist Remember Jones will direct and star as Claude alongside Tony nominees Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages) as Berger and Mary Bridget Davies (A Night with Janis Joplin) as Sheila.
In a statement Jones said, “I’m amazed that these songs and themes have maintained their cultural relevance, even 50 years since the show’s debut on Broadway. My band and I are psyched to put our spin on these iconic tunes.
“I’ll be sharing the stage with two amazing rock singers and friends, Constantine and Mary Bridget. We have a history of successful collaborations, and we’re thrilled to be working together again.”
The Remember Jones Band will serve as both house band and members of the tribe, along with 15 other cast members to be announced. The performances will also feature original projection designs by the Pig Light Show.
A showcase from The Hair Archives, a nonprofit organization recording the history of the musical Hair from its inception through current productions, will also be on-site.
Tickets can be purchased online at axelrodartscenter.com or by calling the box office at (732) 531-9106, ext 4.
