Eastern Front Theatre and Charles Taylor Theatre & Media Arts Association are thrilled to present the world premiere of LOVE, PEACE & HAIRGREASE: THE MUSICAL from local playwright Tara Taylor.
LOVE, PEACE & HAIRGREASE is a play about love and transformation that celebrates afro-textured hair, old and new thoughts and techniques. When Lauren Johnson takes over the legacy of her grandmothers’ salon and renames it Love, Piece and Hairgrease (an Ebonics term meaning “bye”) the venture comes at a great personal cost. When they told her she couldn’t, she did it anyway. How does one find love and peace in the midst of hairgrease life storms? Say bye to fear, old habits, wigs, weaves, and stressed HAIR!
"Easily one of the most joyful, cheeks-hurt-from-smiling theatre experiences I've ever had!"
