An Ode to Flower Power

You don't have to be a long-haired hippie to enjoy the 2009 Tony Award-Winning musical Hair. Sail back through time to rock 'n' roll loving days of the 60s with the story of a group of young people who explore their sexual identity, deny the draft and challenge societal restraints during the Vietnam war. It's all about the peace, love and pacifism. The production, which features groovy songs including "Aquarius" and "Good Morning Starshine," comes straight from Broadway to help kick off the 2011-2012 Lexus Broadway Series. See the show through October 2 at the Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Tickets are $30 to $150. For more information call 214-880-0202 or visit
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 20. Continues through Oct. 2, 2011
