NBC ANNOUNCES NEXT LIVE MUSICAL BROADCAST

 

Hair will be NBC’s next live musical, the network announced Thursday. The news comes not long after their critically-acclaimed live staging of Jesus Christ Superstar on Easter Sunday. Hair Live is currently slated to air in spring 2019. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who have executive produced each of NBC’s live musicals since The Sound of Music, will return.

Hair tells the story of a group of politically active hippies living a bohemian life in New York while fighting against and resisting the Vietnam War.

NBC’s planned staging of Bye Bye Birdie starring Jennifer Lopez is still awaiting a premiere date. It was originally slated for winter 2017 but pushed twice due to Lopez’s packed schedule. It’s now scheduled for 2019.

A live version of Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men is also still without a premiere date.
