Hairspray always delivers, so expect an epic story, an incredible cast, and, of course, some of the most awesome music the industry has ever seen.
Odd and rather dumpy Tracy Turnblad is a young woman in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland who dreams of appearing on "The Corny Collins Show." While in detention with the black students, she picks up some of their dance steps, which helps her land a place on Corny's show. Tracy's overnight fame provides her with a launch pad from which to champion racial equality in the media. The network producer, Velma, and her popular but venomous daughter, Amber, relentlessly poke and bully Tracy.
Eventually, Tracy successfully integrates "The Corny Collins Show" with the aid of teen heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show). Hairspray, winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, is still one of the most incredible staged shows today, largely because of the heart warming message it evokes about accepting one's unique self and moving forward, as well as its hilarious and telegenic performances. The inspiring and empowering story of Tracy Turnblad urges us to fight for the rights of all people, irrespective of superficial similarities like skin color.
You really don't want to lose out this one, so be sure to get the tickets right now.
