This Summer, the musical Hair will be taking over the Hollywood Bowl and the cast just got a little bigger.
Sarah Hyland is returning to her Broadway musical roots and joining the cast as Chrissy. Also joining the cast are Benjamin Walker, singer Mario, Jonah Platt and Kevin Chamberlin from Disney Channel’s “Jessie.”
Sarah is excited to get back on stage. She tweeted, “News! I’ll be Hair the musical this summer at the Hollywood Bowl!!! I couldn’t be more excited to get back to my musical theatre roots!”
They join the previously announced cast of Kristen Bell, Hunter Parrish, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, & Beverly D’Angelo. From its stunning Broadway premiere in 1968, Hair defined the “rock musical,” exuberantly celebrating the hippie counterculture, anti-war movement and sexual revolution of the 1960s with a rainbow score of hits – including “Aquarius,” “Good Morning Starshine,” and “Easy to be Hard” – that have become ingrained in pop culture. Let down your long, beautiful hair, pull out the tie-dye and celebrate this groundbreaking American journey as we “Let the Sunshine In!”
The show will be directed by Adam Shankman and will take place August 1, 2 & 3. For more information, visit HollywoodBowl.com.
