  • Arts of War on the Web » Hair in Central Park Through Aug. 31
    greetings from Uncle Sam I saw Hair on Broadway in 1969 and thought it was a hoot I loved the music and the over the top anti establishment humor The production felt vibrantly alive terrifically irreverant and a slap in the face at our parents generation Does it stand up four decades later Sure some of its act is a bit tired especially the conjuring of an acid trip stretching over four numbers Washington Post theater critic Peter Marks wrote in his review Still in the score by Galt MacDermot James Rado and Gerome Ragni there remain the electric tunes of a Broadway classic of a style that has been emulated in productions down the years from Godspell to Rent Marks went on to call the show a potent mix of exhilaration and nostalgia and something you ll want to see even if it can never again be the type of seismic event it was back in the days of rage The Central Park Public Theater Hair cast Comments Off on Hair in Central Park Through Aug 31 Posted on August 11th 2008 in Musicals Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys Wins Big Book Honor Eddie Adams Enduring Vietnam War Photos Children of the April Rain Play in D C Nov 10 The Draft New Vietnam War Play Tony Gleaton 1948 2015 Don Oberdorfer 1931 2015 Herbert Schandler 1928 2015 Search for Categories Archives Art Art Exhibits Artistic

Brown still working for the Associated Press received the Pulitzer Prize for his Vietnam War reporting he shared that award that year with another young Vietnam War correspondent David Halberstam who

Modern Memory which received the National Book Award was listed as No 75 on the Modern Library s list of the greatest nonfiction books of the 20th century In it Fussell examines World War I through the cultural lens of how it was perceived during and after the fighting His explication of the vast differences between romanticized versions of the war after it was over and the shocking brutality of the actual war itself strongly influenced how historians and other scholars have studied all wars including the Vietnam War It is difficult to underestimate Fussell s influence Vincent B Sherry wrote in The Cambridge Companion to the Literature of the First World War The book s ambition and popularity move interpretation of the war from a relatively minor literary and historical specialization to a much more widespread cultural concern His claims for the meaning of the war are profound and far reaching indeed some have found them hyperbolic Yet whether in spite of or because of the enormity of his assertions Fussell has set the agenda for most of the criticism that has followed him Paul Fussell Jr grew up in Pasadena Calif and was drafted into the Army in 1943 while he was a student at Pomona College He missed D Day but 2o year old Lt Fussell experienced the war at its worst He served as a 7th Army rifle platoon leader in southwestern France from November 1944 until six months later when Fussell was wounded as many of his men lay dying around him He never got over it Fussell wrote two books about his World War II
