One can always rely on Hairspray to deliver, and that means an incredible story, an astonishing cast, and, of course, some of the best music ever created for a musical.
Strange but fat Young Tracy Turnblad of Baltimore, Maryland, in 1962, thirsts for a place on "The Corny Collins Show." She learns some of the black students' dance steps 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 promote 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 lovable teen heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show).
In addition to its incredibly funny and charming performances, the uplifting message it conveys about accepting one's unusual self and moving forward is a big reason why Hairspray, winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, is still one of the most unprecedented staged shows today. We become inspired and engaged by Tracy Turnblad's story that we must stand up for the rights of all people, regardless of external differences such as race. You shouldn't lose out on this one, so get your tickets now.
