Hair opened at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London on September 27, 1968. The opening night was delayed until the abolition of theatre censorship in England under the Theatres Act 1968. The original London cast included Sonja Kristina, Paul Nicholas, Melba Moore, Elaine Paige, Paul Korda, Marsha Hunt, Floella Benjamin, Alex Harvey, Oliver Tobias, Richard O'Brien and Tim Curry. The musical was forced to close by the roof of the theatre collapsing in July 1973.

It was considered "not seemly to indulge in any kind of diversions or amusements during such troublous times." England became a republic, but it didn't take. The monarchy (& theatres) returned during the "Restoration", from 1660. SE1, London Bridge Tube.
