It was originally scheduled to end March 21.
“Hair,” which brought hits like “Age of Aquarius,” “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Be-In (Hare Krishna) and more, tells the story of a group of young Americans searching for love and peace during the Vietnam era.

A special “Twitter Night,” sponsored by Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s Road Runner, is slated for 8 p.m. March 20, where MVT will lift its ban on electronic devices and allow audience members to actively tweet, post and blog during the performance.
