“I feel like it’s one of the greatest achievements of our career. I feel more proud than I’ve ever felt of anything,” Susan Marie Rhea, co-director of Keegan Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Hair, told Metro Weekly. Unless you’re already a lucky ticket holder, there’s no chance of hearing the ensemble perform Hair, as the show, which closes this Sunday, has been sold out for weeks.
But they did add one last appearance. Last Tuesday, April 22nd, before Albert Pujols hit his 500th homer at Nationals Park, the Keegan cast of Hair took to the field to sing the national anthem. “We had a rainbow cover the stadium as they started to sing!” Keegan Theatre’s Producing Artistic Director emailed us.
Nevertheless, the Los Angeles Angels cruised to a 7 – 2 victory over the Washington Nationals.
Keegan closes their highly successful season with two comedies before shutting down for renovations of their Church Street facility: Things you Shouldn’t Say Past Midnight opens May 10 and A Midsummer Night’s Riot opens May 16. Details and tickets.
