HAIR (the musical) - Rare Pre-Broadway Ad... "Village Voice"...
Item # 662401
October 19, 1967
THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York, October 19, 1967
* A extremely rare ad for the Broadway Hit - "HAIR" - prior to making it to Broadway
* The Public Theater - Greenwich, in the Village's own iconic newspaper
Prior to making it to Broadway and becoming one of the most famous musicals to hit the stage, the musical "Hair" appeared off-Broadway at The Public Theater in Greenwich Village. This issue contains two ads (both on pg. 27 for both) for the show. Due to its limited engagement, and it being prior to its incredible Broadway success, such ads are extremely rare - and even more so when from Greenwich Village's own iconic newspaper.
Other ads include those for Jefferson Airplane, Arlo Guthrie, Donovan, and more, as well as a feature article on the brutal murders of "Hippie" James Leroy Hutchinson (aka, "Groovy"), and his girlfriend, Linda Fitzpatrick. See images for details re: the ads and the article.
The newspaper is complete in 48 pages, has an archival mend to the back advertising page, has only minor margin-contained edge-tears, and is in overall good condition.
Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive.
