KC Rep Lets Its 'Hair' Down

Beth Lipoff

Long-haired peace-loving hippies promoting ideas of free love are the foundation of the ground-breaking 1967 musical "Hair".

On Friday's Up to Date, we talk with two of the Broadway cast members about their experiences on stage, what the show means to them and why they're taking part in a new retrospective production at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre.


  • Heather MacRae, who played Sheila in Hair on Broadway
  • Larry Marshall, who played Berger, Hud and other roles in Hair on Broadway

You can catch the Rep's production of Hair: Retrospection through April 12 at the Spencer Theatre. For tickets, contact the Kansas City Repertory Theatre.

I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
