“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
