|HAiR - BCEFA Actor's Fund Benefit Concert|
|Recorded at the New Amsterdam Theatre, New York, NY, USA. Very good pro-shot recording.
The show is a little bit weird, it's more like a concert than a musical but it has some dialogue. Even though very well performed (but pretty 'clean') it's not really about the 'HAiR spirit' IMO. :)
The lineage must have been (about) as follows: 'official' DVD > VHS > DVD > Hard Drive > Torrent.
As said in the info file below, the movie starts with a small section of a Gypsy of the Year Awards. Then, a DVD menu appears (but it's not working since it's just a recorded menu from a VHS). Then, the main movie starts. After the movie, another DVR-kinda-like screen appears for about 15 minutes.

BCEFA Actor's Fund Benefit Concert (Performance)
2004-09-20 - New York, NY
NTSC - Pro-shot
THIS IS A MUSICAL!
Trade DVD > Hard Drive > You
By request! This is the pro-shot of the 4th Annual Actor's Fund Benefit Concert. Both the performance and the practice are available. This is the PERFORMANCE. There is a veritable 'who's who' of Broadway in the cast. The DVD starts with a small section of a Gypsy of the Year Awards with another group of Broadway and Hollywood stars. The VHS source is a little generated, so I'd rate this at A-.
Cast - Soshana Bean, Laura Benanti, Kathy Brier, Jim J. Bullock, Liz Callaway, Gavin Creel, Darius de Haas, Lea DeLaria, Raul Esparza, Harvey Fierstein, Ana Gasteyer, Annie Golden, Ann Harada, Jeffifer Hudson, Ledisi, Morm Lewis, Michael McKean, Euan Morton, Julia Murney, Nancy Opel, Orfeh, Adam Pascal, Billy Porter, Jai Rodriguez, RuPaul, Christopher Sieber, Shayna Steele, John Tartaglia, Toxic Audio, Lillias White, Harris Doran as Claude.
