Description

Broadway's musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

In "Hairspray" it's 1962, the '50s are out and change is in the air.  Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad ... a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart ... has only one passion - to dance.  She wins a spot on the local TV dance programme, 'The Corny Collins Show' and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity.  But can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the programme's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? ... only in "Hairspray"!  Welcome to the '60s!

Don't miss "Hairspray" - Broadway's musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.  As The New York Times says, "If life were everything it should be, it would be more like 'Hairspray'.  It's irresistible!"

Live comedy doesn't get any bigger than this!
