‘Hair’

The Age of Aquarius dawns again as Majestic Repertory Theatre lets the sunshine in with “Hair,” as a tribe of performers (including a live band) delivers such hits as “Let the Sunshine In,” “Good Morning Starshine” and the title tune, at The Space, 3460 Cavaretta Court, at 8 p.m. Fridays, 4 and 8 p.m. Saturdays and 5 p.m. Sundays through Aug. 27. Tickets ($27) are available at majesticrepertory.com.
