Hairspray is magically electric on stage. The choreography is simply amazing. The cast is constantly in motion. They are graceful and fluid doing things that normal people just can't. Even more amazing, is that they SING throughout. The story is simple, the set is adequate, the music is nice. Put it all together with the energy of the cast, and it is easily worth full price.
Quotes & Highlights
- “If life were everything it should be, it would be more like Hairspray. It’s irresistible.”--<em>New York Times</em>
It's 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire - to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, a transformed Tracy uses her newfound power to vanquish the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network - all without denting her 'do! Hairspray is Broadway's musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best musical.
Running time (approximate): 2 hours and 37 minutes
