About the Show

The first rock musical to hit the great white way and the product of hippie counter-culture and the sexual revolution of the 1960s.

Story: Berger is the leader of a politically active "tribe" of long haired hippies who include Claude, Berger, Jeannie, Shelia and Woof. But their love-filled way of life is thrown into disarray when Claude is drafted.

NOTE: Includes nudity, sexual references and violence.
