Description

The 2003 Tony Award®-Winner for Best Musical

The world is spinning out of control … but all Tracy Turnblad wants to do is dance.

When she wins a coveted spot on The Corny Collins Show, Baltimore’s most popular teen dance program, the high school loser with the big heart, big personality and big hair proves everyone wrong and becomes a local TV celebrity.

But is segregated Baltimore ready to embrace her demand for racial integration? And will her larger-than-life mother ever leave the house?
