"HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical" was originally written in the 1960s in response tothe
public reaction to the Vietnam War. It touches on the issues of sexuality, politics, religion and identity in
that era. The student group performing it now, MUSKET, was founded in 1908, and has presented many
shows in its time ranging from old classics to modern hits.
