Drury Lane never disappoints. The show was well staged, singing was fantastic and the atmosphere very fun. I would not recommend for children under 10, only because Hairspray is full of innuendo.

Originally a cult classic John Waters film,_ Hairspray _was remade in 2007, starring John Travolta and Michelle Pfeiffer. The remake, which was nominated for a Golden Globe, was one of the top five highest grossing movie musicals of all time. The smash hit Broadway production of Hairspray won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. “You Can’t Stop the Beat” to this family-friendly musical that is piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. Set in Baltimore in 1962, Hairspray is the story of pleasantly plump teen, Tracy Turnblad, who does whatever it takes to fulfill her lifelong dream of appearing on the popular_ Corny Collins Show_. Can this plus-size trendsetter vanquish the program’s reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her fabulous ’do? Only in Hairspray! “Welcome to the ’60s!”
