A rock-musical with music by Galt MacDermot and book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni. The show is set in America at the height of the Vietnam War and tells the story of Claude Hooper Bukowski, a young man struggling to find a sense of self when he is drafted to war. He is forced to pick between succumbing to the conservative expectations of the likes of his parents or give in to the pressure from his friends by resisting the law and refusing to fight in the war. The show is considered highly controversial, dealing with sex, racism, homophobia, war, and live nudity onstage. In 1968, the original production was nominated for Best Musical and Best Director at the Tony Awards, and the recent 2009 revival of the show won for Best Revival of a Musical. Both the original and revival productions of the show were staged during wars, making the story all the more poignant and relatable.
