Hair Cancels Matinee So Cast Can March For Gay Rights

“In an unusual move for a Broadway show, the producers of the musical ‘Hair’ announced on Monday that they were canceling the Sunday matinee on Oct. 11 so that the cast could join the National Equality March that day in Washington in support of gay-marriage rights. Oskar Eustis, the artistic director of the Public Theater, a producer of ‘Hair,’ said that the decision reflected the spirit of the musical.”
