Hairspray always delivers, and that includes an incredible plot, an outstanding cast, and, of course, some of the best music ever written for a musical. Tracy Turnblad, an out-of-the-ordinary fat teen from Baltimore, Maryland, has one aspiration 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 star status overnight, uses her newfound celebrity to promote racial equality on the show. Tracy is targeted and verbally abused by Velma, the network producer, and her popular but nasty daughter, Amber.
As the story untwists, Tracy successfully incorporates "The Corny Collins Show" with the assistance 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 done musicals today not only because of its elegance and humor but also because of the constructive message it sends about recognizing 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.
