Premiere October 22, 2022, WDR Funkhaus Cologne (DE)

 

"Ich schwöre, ich wär' so gerne wieder Frisör!" (Really, I would love to become a hairdresser again!)" With Hair & Make-Up artist Jan Wagner, moderator Julia Schöning and special guest Thomas D., the WDR Funkhausorchester explores the wide world of hair - because long before the legendary "mushroom heads" of The Beatles the looks of (pop) stars have inspired and shaped entire generations. Live on stage there will be cut, blow-dried and styled. Schlagers like "Siebzehn Jahr, blondes Haar", hits from the cult musical "Hair" and "Hairspray " provide the right sound.
