I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

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!

Quotes & Highlights

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

Description

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
