The hit Broadway musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. Bubbling with joy and 60s era music and dance, Hairspray delights with the pleasures of a classic American musical. Tracy Turnblad is a teen whose life revolves around dancing on the Corny Collins TV show. Who knew that a teenybopper TV show could be a catalyst for integration? You can’t stop the beat, and truth be told, you won’t want to once the all-singing and dancing cast takes the stage.
