Hairspray always delivers, and that involves an incredible story, a talented cast, and, of course, some of the most triumphant music ever written for a musical. Tracy Turnblad, an out-of-the-ordinary fat teen from Baltimore, Maryland, has one goal in life: to dance on "The Corny Collins Show." She picks up some of their dance moves while serving detention with the school's African-American students and eventually makes it onto Corny's show. Tracy, who rose to fame overnight, uses her newfound celebrity to advocate racial equality on the show. Tracy is targeted and accosted by Velma, the network producer, and her popular but cruel daughter, Amber.
As the story unfolds, Tracy successfully integrates "The Corny Collins Show" with the help of teen heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show). Hairspray, which won the Tony Award for Best Musical, is one of the most played musicals today not only because of its flair and humor but also because of the hopeful message it sends about integrating one's differences and moving forward. Tracy Turnbald's amazing story inspires us to look beyond superficial differences like skin color and advocate for the basic human rights of all people.
