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
