The Gypsywood Players - Hair
10 or 12 Dec, Buranteatr - Kounicova 20

Come and see GWP’s own, freewheeling adaptation of the „noisy accident,“ as it was originally perceived, that brought the turned-on, tuned-in, and dropped-out counterculture of the late ‘60s from the streets and parks onto the stage, and thereby “shook musical theatre to its roots.” Peace!
