Thanksgiving home movie 1970 at age 20

I recently saw the revival of the rock musical “Hair” at the Delecourt Theatre in Central Park as part of New York Public Theater’s Sharkespere in the Park. How our perception of social political symbolism has changed through the years. To have long hair in the 60’s was youth’s rebellion to the Viet Nam war and to the drug culture. I had long hair back then. I have fond memories of seeing the original production on Broadway back in the early 70’s just after moving to New York. Later I had the pleasure of knowing Jerry Ragni on of the co-writes.  The more recent production is even better with technological improvements as well as more athletic performances from members of the cast. Word is out that the public’s  production of Hair will be moving to Broadway. Tickets are free if you are willing to wait in line.
