The first disposable safety razor was invented in Boston in 1901, and with it came over a century of clean-shaven American men. But recent years have witnessed a revival of stubbled jaws, mustachioed lips, and bearded cheeks - from Ben Affleck and George Clooney to the 2007 writers' strike and the World Series Red Sox. On today's Up To Date, Steve Kraske looks at the newfound respectability of the beard, how it's become a style icon in its own right, and how facial hair stereotypes are being shorn away.

Back in the 1960s, long hair, political protests and nudity on stage were all taboo subjects to appear in the theater, but that changed when the musical Hair debuted. Over 40 years later the musical is still provocative to audiences in a contemporary way.

The show is currently on tour and opens in Kansas City tonight at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and runs through Sunday. Music Director Lilli Wosk and Noah Plomgren, who plays Claude, join Brian Ellison to talk about life on tour and how this ground-breaking musical is still relevant to today's audiences.
