  1. How fun to see Ace and Diana front and center like this! …I would think that it would be thrilling for a young theater person to be part of Public Theater’s long and uber-distinguished history, too. Nice reward for being their hard-working, talented selves.

  2. If anyone has a chance to see this show – Do it! The show has you laughing and in tears by the end, it’s very emotional.
    Ace, Kyle and Diana are fantastic. Diana has an amazing voice, girl can sing. When she does Easy to Be Hard, it’s pretty amazing. Ace is fantastic in the character of Berger, gives you something real purty to look at too.
    It’s hard to not have a crush on Kyle by the end of the performance, he’s so sweet.
    Contrary to what Ace said, I would not bring young kids to see this unless you already know what you’re getting. There is some intense language and simulated sex. It’s definitely not a “family” show.

  3. I’m getting an error message here on the video, mj. I went to YouTube and searched for it so I could watch it.

    Ace is going to have certain families pissed at him if they bring their pre-teens to Hair on his advice. Once the cast starts singing
    “Sodomy” while simulating sex acts those families could be scrambling for the door.

    Every interview I see with Diana impresses me more. She really isn’t a pageant princess, “Dibot” anymore is she? Her success on Broadway makes me surprisingly happy, for some reason. It feels very natural to root for her now even though I wasn’t a huge fan during her season.

  4. Thanks for posting this, MJ. Ace and Diana seem to be doing a terrific job in this show. It always surprises me when parents bring their young kids to this as it is not family friendly, but it is a great show, with a good message.

  5. I saw ‘Hair’ a couple weeks ago and LOVED it. It truly is involving and exhilarating. Ace and Diana are superb in their roles. I love how the cast members come down off the stage and interact with the audience. And I agree that the themes are rather adult and not appropriate for small children.

    I’m glad that Ace and Diana seem to have found a niche in musical theater although I know Ace has said he’d like to do it all. He has new music and a video he plans on releasing later in the year.

  6. It’s great to see Ace and Diana finding so much success on Broadway. Good for them! This looks like a great show– too bad I’m so far away or I’d definitely go see it.

  7. I hope I get a chance to see it while Diana and Ace are still there, but I’m just not sure if its in the cards.

    I grew up in the 70s and everything was family friendly then, even if it wasn’t. My mom took me to see One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest when I was six because my dad didn’t like going to the movies. Afterward, she asked me if I understood it and then patted me on the head when I said no. Heh. She also took me to see Best Little Whorehouse when I was 13 or so, but I kinda got that one. ;-)

    However, she never would let me stay up late enough to watch “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” and I need to look that shit up.

    I’ve seen the movie Hair and thought it was cheesy and I think kids who see it can get the message without understanding the references, probably. That’s how it worked in my day.

  8. A pop culture victim, I saw this headline and thought the former Idol was going to a salon.
