Hairspray: The Broadway Musical
Book by Mark O’Donnell Thomas Meehan
Music by Marc Shaiman
Lyrics by Scott Wittman Marc Shaiman
Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters
In 1960s Baltimore, dance-loving teen Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky) auditions for a spot on The Corny Collins Show and wins. She becomes an overnight celebrity, a trendsetter in dance, fun and fashion. Perhaps her new status as a teen sensation is enough to topple Corny's reigning dance queen and bring racial integration to the show.
A great musical for all the family with some amazing show tunes as well.
