What You'll Get
Based on John Waters’ cult classic movie Hairspray, this live musical adaptation swept the 2003 Tony Awards and inspired a remake of the classic film – this time starring John Travolta in drag. Set in 1962, Hairspray follows “pleasantly plump” teenager Tracy Turnblad, whose dream is to dance on a local TV dance program. When she wins a spot, she becomes an overnight celebrity and launches a campaign to integrate the show, which until then did not allow black dancers (except once a month on “Negro Day”). Packed with catchy tunes that nod to Elvis and Motown and a plot that’s both bubblegum sweet and socially relevant, this feel-good musical takes the stage at Bloomington Center for the Arts.
