Affairs of the Hair

"Cuttin' Up," the latest play by Charles Randolph-Wright, is playing at the Pasadena Playhouse. Daily News theater critic Evan Henderson popped up north to review it last week and poses a great question:

Among them: Does the type of neighborhood barbershop depicted in this play still actually exist either around Pasadena — where "Cuttin' Up" is set — or anywhere else in the United States? Does the barbershop in fact serve as a kind of stop-in-any-time social networking spot for African-Americans?

What? Hasn't Henderson ever stopped by the ol' 18|8?
