Meet The Tribe, a group of politically active hippies of the “Age of Aquarius” living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting the draft in the rock musical, “Hair.” The show grew out of the hippie counter-culture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, and the musical’s profanity, its sexuality, and its irreverence caused controversy when it debuted Off-Broadway in 1967. After moving to Broadway the following year, it ran for 1,750 performances and its songs became anthems of the peace movement.

A Broadway revival opened in 2009, earning strong reviews and winning the Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for best revival of a musical. Age has not lessened the powerful impact of this four-decades-old musical, as Time magazine reports: “Today Hair seems, if anything, more daring than ever.”

“Hair” opens at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre on Friday with a calendar of related events accompanying its run through July 14.

• Friday, June 15: Opening night reception begins at 7 p.m. followed by the show at 8 p.m.

• Saturday, June 16: Stay afterwards to watch the Riverbend finale fireworks from the Theatre Centre patio at no extra charge.
