“From the moment the curtain rises, the show practically bursts alive in front of you with both sound and color…If there’s one thing – of many – that you can rely on with ABT it’s no corner cutting. This Hairspray is huge!” David Appleford, 99.9 KEZ –
It’s 1962 in Baltimore, and the “pleasantly plump” teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire: to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. She’s a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart who sets out to follow her extraordinary dreams and win the boy she loves. Winner of the 2003 TONY Award for Best Musical, this family-friendly show is piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and deliriously tuneful songs. Hairspray is the ultimate feel-good musical!
