DG: I should start by saying that I saw this production in the summer of 2008, when it played the open-air Delacorte Theatre in Central Park. Many aspects (staging, casting) have improved considerably.
LD: Well, being that this was my first experience seeing a professional version of “Hair” I was extremely impressed. The amount of interactivity with the crowd really made the show for me, especially from Gavin Creel. He really took his role to an extreme, but it worked.
