Bridgeport Theatre Company’s diverse collective of local barnstormers seek to shatter the fourth wall with their exhilarating take on Hairspray: The Broadway Musical, the winner of eight Tony Awards. Proudly tracing its lineage to the John Waters film of the same name, Hairspray chronicles the romantic and ambitious struggles of apple-cheeked Tracy Turnblad, an overweight teen in 1962 Baltimore who dreams of cavorting on The Corny Collins Show. Musical direction by Stephanie Gaumer and choreography by Julia Maggiola amplify director Christy McIntosh’s vivid production, which pairs the score’s strains of doo-wop and gospel with the book’s beguiling blend of comedy and drama to explore the era's somber struggle for racial integration and nonaerosol styling products. Audiences can sip on suds and soft drinks when aiming faces at the Downtown Cabaret Theatre’s stage, which presides over two levels of cabaret-style seating.
Though Bridgeport Theatre Company sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
