The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Hair at the Hollywood Bowl!

Here’s a giveaway for all my West Coast readers!

Although, this show is so star packed, if you win, it would be worth a flight from just about anywhere in the world.

The shows at the Hollywood Bowl have become quite a staple of summer fun in Los Angeles, with lots of the Hollywood stars that sing and dance taking part.  It’s their musical theater fix, since so many of them don’t have the freedom in their schedule to do a show on this coast for an extended period of time.

And this year, they’re getting all hippie-like and doing Hair!

First, they’ve got quite a star in director/choreographer Adam Shankman.

And then, they’ve got Kristen Bell, Sarah Hyland, my good pal Hunter Parrish from Godspell, not to mention Beverly D’Angelo, Ben Walker, and a whole bunch of others.  Click here to see ’em all

(Side note – I actually saw Kristen Bell do Hair once before – when she was an undergrad at NYU.  The show was performed in a rehearsal studio, with no scenery, folding chairs, and lights up and lights down.  And still, I remember thinking, “Who the heck is that girl?  Cuz she is going places.”)

And now, I know what you’re thinking . . .

How do you win tickets?  (Although I bet a few of you creepers out there are also wondering which of these stars are gonna get naked at the end of Act One, aren’t you?  Admit it.  Admit it!)

Ok, here’s how you enter to win two tickets to see Hair at the Hollywood Bowl:

Let’s cast a dream Hollywood Bowl of our own, shall we?

Let’s imagine that next year, the Bowl decides to do . . . oh, I don’t know . . . Oklahoma!

You’ve got your pick of any Hollywood stars you want.  Who would you cast as . . . Curly, Laurie, Judd, Will and Annie?

Cast ’em in the comments below and you could win the tickets of see Hair (And see which one of these stars get down to the the buck!)

Good luck!  (Hehe.  That rhymed.)

    The “Hollywood” cast of “Oklahoma”: Cate Blanchett as Laurie, Liam Nesson as Curly, Robert DiNiro as Judd, Sarah Jessica Parker as Ado Annie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Will Parker,. And why not Meryl Streep as Aunt Eller and Sacha Baron Cohen as Ali Hakim.

    My girlfriend Margary Simkin pulls this show together every summer, as well as casting it. And every summer I miss it because it happens right when we take our family trip. But she did take me to the dress rehearsal of The Producers with Richard Kind, which was adorable. I begged her to please voice memo Hunter (he did my husband’s movie Freedomwriters) and she said she couldn’t of course but said she would ask him to facetime me and sing a bit. I told her, please no! Mortified! Adore that sweet soul though and his angel voice.
