Rock 'n' Roll Musical Moving To Cheetah
The New York Times - December 6, 1967

hair, the first offering at the New York Shakespeare Festival's Public theater, will close it's eight week engagement Sunday night, and be transferred Dec. 22 to Cheetah, the discotheque-nightclub at broadway and 53rd Street.

The Gerome Ragni - James Rado - Galt MacDermot rock 'n' Roll musical which was staged by Gerald Freeman, reached capacity toward the end of its second week at the 299-seat downtown house. Seating capacity at Cheetah will be 687.

The move was made possible by Michael Butler, a 41-year old Chicago financier, a successful angel for other stage projects.

Mr. Butler advanced $50,000 to affect the transfer.  Profits will be shared equally by him and the festival.
