AGE OF AQUARIUS: Look for plenty of Levi’s jeans onstage when the Broadway revival of “Hair” opens at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on Tuesday night. Costume designer Michael McDonald has outfitted the entire cast in Levi’s product, in a nod to the denim maker’s impact on Sixties counterculture style. Among the Levi’s styles in the costume lineup are reissued vintage bell bottoms, Capital E Hesher fit jeans and 501’s — in the Acid Trip wash, naturally. And while a corporate backer of “Hair” might seem a bit like advertising in Pravda, Levi Strauss & Co. is also sponsoring the musical. “Our brand’s impact on the style and times of the late 1960s was a profound one, so the Levi’s jeans and ‘Hair’ relationship is an authentic, perfect fit,” explained Robert Hanson, president of Levi Strauss Americas.
