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...continued

The cast, the music, the ambiance of the whole theater experience was wonderful. The ensemble’s voices filled the whole theater, you can’t help but smile wide-eyed during some of the numbers. I wouldn’t say that the voices are annoying, they are...continued

I attended Hairspray with a friend and fellow Broadway fan. Neither of us had seen the show but were both familar with the original movie. The lead was fine - she had great energy on the group dance numbers but seems to struggle when dancing...continued

I took my 15 year old niece to see her first musical and she loved it! Seats were great and worth the price. Music, costumes, singing and dancing were all great. Completely enjoyed it!

I took my 13 year old Granddaughter & realized I was her exact same age in 1962 so we talked about how things were then. I think it's important for the younger generation to learn what things have been overcome in this country to make it better...continued

We had a wonderful time at Hairspray - the show was amazing! It was different from the movie with John Travolta but I actually preferred the stage version. The cast was incredible and I really loved the choreography - I highly recommend seeing...continued

Hairspray is always fantastic! The cast is phenomenal. Such a fun show that you can see over and over again. This is the 5th time I have seen Hairspray and it is just as much fun as the first time I saw it. Everyone should see Hairspray!

This is such a fun show! I didn't even realize I'd been smiling for almost the entire show until the end when I realized my face hurt. You can't help but root for Tracy and her big heart. It's a funny, warm-hearted, campy musical that is such a...continued

I really liked this play. The characters voices did get a bit annoting at times but other than that I have no complaints! The set was all automated and was really amazing as were the costumes. The singing was incredible too. I loved it and would...continued

We really enjoyed this musical for a fun girls night out. I also appreciated the message beyond all of the frivolity.

Hairspray is a great show, if you haven't seen it, you should. Very uplifting. The Orange County Performing Arts Center is not my favorite viewing venue - especially the dreaded tier 3 - but it didn't stop me from enjoying the performance. ...continued

An extremely energetic show with lots of color, both in cast member outfits as well as stage props/backdrops. Voices were excellent, as was the orchestra. Definitely a worthwhile show to see!

I have always loved Hairspray as a show. The last time I saw it was on Broadway the last week of the run. They have brought the original Tony Award winning stars playing Edna and Tracy back. It was electric.

The tour cast was fun and had...continued

The musical production of Hairspray was everything I was expecting and more. We were delighted to hear that the actor playing Mrs. Turnblad would be George Wendt, “Norm” from Cheers. It was fantastic and funny, especially with the ad libs from...continued

Hairspray was very entertaining. I hadn't seen either movie and so had no real preconceived notions about the show. A fun and funny story and catchy tunes (though admittedly, most tunes were not catchy enough to hum as you walked out of the...continued

Lots of energy and the great score really had this production moving. It was a great time. The seating at the segerstrom is a little odd, but now I know that the sweet spot is tier 2, so my next outing will be even better.

What a fun evening! This was a fast paced, energetic romp thru what has always been called Americas hey days. The cast was packed to the brim with talent who took every opportunity to shine and sparkle. While the whole cast was great I do have to...continued
