The Sunday Giveaway: 2 Tickets to Hair on Broadway!

The recent Broadway revival of Hair directed by the exceptionally creative Diane Paulus spawned a tour that has been getting naked all over the country for the last 9 months or so.

And they are spending their summer here with us on Broadway at The St. James Theater.  (Lots of shows used to play summer stops on Broadway before heading back out on the road – it’s nice to see this model come back with Hair.)

So if you’ve got a craving to experience The Tribe all over again, or if you missed it the first time, now’s your chance, because we’ve got 2 tickets to give away!

Here’s how we’re going to pick a winner:

The nude scene in Hair obviously shook a lot of people up when it first revealed itself back in the day.  It’s still something people talk about, although I just had dinner with a neighbor last night who recently took their 10-year-old to the show because they didn’t think it was a big deal anymore.

Obviously times have changed. (There’s a video billboard in Times Square for American Eagle that shows a mostly naked girl that I’d bet wouldn’t have been approved a decade ago.)

My question is this . . . is nudity in the theater still shocking?  Is it more accepted nowadays?  Do you think there will be more of it in the future, or less?

Comment below (or by clicking here) your feelings on nakedness in the theater and I’ll pick a winner randomly from the comments.

Good luck!
