It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire -- to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. Hairspray, winner of 8 TONY Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.
"Hairspray is as sweet as a show can be without promoting tooth decay. ... [it] succeeds in recreating the pleasures of the old-fashioned musical comedy without seeming old-fashioned.” -The New York Times
