Let The Sunshine In – Video
Yesterday, my parents and I went into the city to see Hair (which won the 2009 Tony for best revival of a musical). Um – WOW. I’m obsessed. We realized right before we went in that it was the 40th anniversary of Woodstock – what timing! The whole show was an incredible testament to the time period, to activism, to peace, and to freedom. It was the perfect blend of activism and fun. I left realizing both how much and how little have changed in the last 40 years. It is a different time, different people, different causes – but we still need peace, we still need happiness, we still need activism. We need an eco-revolution: we need to let the sunshine in, to fight against the systems in place that are holding back our world from being a place of peace, beauty, and love. Hair, though initially written about Vietnam, was the perfect testament to what our world should be. It was a protest in the most beautiful, energetic, peaceful way possible. Kudos to director Diane Paulus and the cast – they have bridged the gap between time periods and made the show entirely relevant and necessary to our world today. And man, was it incredible!
