Hair, the acclaimed Broadway musical revival, starts previews tonight at the Gielgud Theatre in London.

Cameron Mackintosh has brought over the entire New York cast of James Rado and Gerome Ragni’s 1967 tribal rock musical, starring the sexy and charismatic Gavin Creel as Claude.

The show, set  against the backdrop of the Vietnam war draft during the 1960s, centres on a group of hippies who champion peace, love and freedom and features a famous score including songs Aquarius, Good Morning Starshine, Let The Sunshine In and, of course, Hair.

The current Broadway production by the Public Theater, which won a 2009 Tony Award for Best  Revival of a Musical, celebrated its one-year anniversary yesterday, 31 March, at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York.
