“Hair” to Feature Nudity!

The Penn State Thespians’ production of “Hair” this weekend WILL contain nudity!  The actors had not received approval to appear on stage without clothing until Tuesday night– just two days before opening night.  The cast was not even allowed to rehearse nude. The lack of preparation time should not detract from the experience, though.

Cast member Andrew Baglini, a Senior, is very excited to fully embrace the essence of the sixties. He knows that some people may be wary of the nudity, but insists that it is “tasteful.”  When asked if one of his most conservative friends would be offended by the nude scenes, Baglini responded with “If she comes, I guarantee she will not be uncomfortable.”

The audience member must come into the performance with an open mind, however. “The hit tribal rock musical” is publicized on promotional fliers as having an R-rating and is “strongly discouraged for persons under age 18” because of “sexual content, language & drug use.”

Performances are today, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30pm with a matinee on Saturday at 2pm. All performances will be at Schwab Auditorium. Prices are $8 for students, $12 for adults.
