Piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance and infectious tunes, Hairspray hits the Warehouse Theater stage. John Waters' cult film is now a theatrical sensation -- the Broadway version won 8 Tonys including "Best Musical." Set in '60s Baltimore, Hairspray tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, a lovable misfit who becomes a local celebrity by dancing on TV's Corny Collins Show. It's a dream come true for the plus-sized Tracy, but she soon realizes some teens are kept off the show because of their skin color. Tracy's love of dancing and passion for justice transform her into an unlikely heroine, triumphing over both snotty teen queens and racial segregation. And she does it all without mussing a hair on her stylish 'do. Jesse Corti directs a fresh and fierce new production of this "big, fat musical comedy hit" at Azusa Pacific University.
