“You can’t stop an avalanche as it races down the hill
You can try to stop the seasons, girl, but you know you never will
And you can try to stop my dancing feet, but I just cannot stand still!“
Hairspray is the kind of musical which will have you singing and tapping your feet the entire time, and also really make you think at the same time. It imagines a world where no one is an outsider and no one is a square, and invites everyone in.
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 program, “The Corny Collins Show” and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program’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! Bright, campy and wonderfully light, “Hairspray” reminds us that fun comes in all shapes and sizes. Now THAT’S worth singing about. =)

The musical features an original score by Marc Shaiman (who co-wrote the music and lyrics for the acclaimed animated musical, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut) and Scott Wittman. Their songs take Tracy from the soundstage of a 60`s-style dance show to the streets of Baltimore to a downtown rhythm and blues record shop.
Hairspray went on to win 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical and has also become one of the most successful and popular movie musicals starring John Travolta, Zach Efron and Michelle Pfeiffer.
