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 supposed to sound like that and if it is hard on the ears to listen to after awhile I think it depends where you are sitting in the theater. The acoustics contribute a lot to the whole experience as well. This is a cute family friendly show that can encourage a dialogue challenging the ideas and conceptions about stereotypes, beauty, prejudice to name a few. For the price, you can’t beat it. I definitely recommend this play to be pleasurable for you. :0)

Quotes & Highlights
“If life were everything it should be, it would be more like Hairspray. It’s irresistible.”—New York Times
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
