The cause of death was heart failure, according to his publicist. Alongside Gerome Ragni, Rado began staging Hair off-Broadway and following its Broadway release, the musical became a kind of metonym for 1960s America, especially the hippie counterculture. The Miloš Forman-directed movie version cemented Hair’s legacy as an American classic.
