One can always depend on Hairspray to provide, and that means an incredible story, an astonishing cast, and, of course, some of the best music ever created for a stage production.
Odd but fat Young Tracy Turnblad of Baltimore, Maryland, in 1962, longs for a spot on "The Corny Collins Show." She learns some of the black students' dance moves while serving detention with them and uses them to get on Corny's show. Tracy's sudden notoriety gives her a platform from which to foster tolerance and diversity in the press. Unfortunately, Tracy is relentlessly harassed by Velma, the network producer, and Amber, her popular but highly vengeful daughter. After some time, Tracy is able to successfully integrate "The Corny Collins Show" with the help of likeable young heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show).
In addition to its incredibly funny and charismatic performances, the uplifting message it conveys about accepting one's different self and moving forward is a big reason why Hairspray, winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, is still one of the most magnificent staged shows today. We become inspired and informed by Tracy Turnblad's story that we must stand up for the rights of all people, regardless of exterior differences such as race. You shouldn't miss out on this one, so purchase your tickets now.
