HAIR
June 30, 2016  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 10:15 p.m. ET

 
Speaking of Hamilton, when it comes to Broadway shows that introduced or popularized new types of music to Broadway, TCM includes two film musicals representative of that trend. First, at 10:15 p.m. ET, comes the 1979 film version of Hair, directed by Milos Forman, who loved the musical’s embrace of political, lyrical and visual freedom. John Savage and Treat Williams star, and Central Park is the setting for most of the action, and the hits include the title song, “Easy to Be Hard,” “Aquarius,” “Let the Sunshine In,” and many others.
