In 1962, Tracy Turnblad, a large girl with big hair and a kind heart, has only one passion - to dance. She wins a spot on a local TV dance program, and is quickly transformed into a teen celebrity. She then successfully sets out to vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of the super handsome Link Larkin, and racially integrate the television show. While fun and completely over the top, Hairspray is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960's. The songs include 60's style dance music and "downtown" rhythm and blues. This adaptation of John Waters' film won 8 Tony Awards and includes some of the most iconic characters in stage history.
