LAWRENCE, Kan. - "When the moon is in the second house and Jupiter aligns with Mars..." The music swelled from the wispy opening notes to the raucous crescendo of "The Age of Aquarius," and the tribe of actors, high school students or those just out of high school, sang and danced around the stage in a colorful weave that celebrated the age of peace and love.
This, the last show of the summer for the Lawrence Arts Center Summer Youth Theater (SYT) pulled me back over the forty-two years since I'd seen Hair the first time, a Broadway touring company performance in Chicago in 1968. My granddaughter was in the SYT production. It was to be her last performance for SYT and I didn't want to miss it. Also, I wanted to see how the play held up.
