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.
