It’s 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one dream—to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to vanquish the reigning teen queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her ’do!
Hairspray became an immediate Broadway smash when it premiered at the Neil Simon Theater in the summer of 2002. After winning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, its place in Broadway history was confirmed. To quote one of the show’s many catchy songs, “you can’t stop the beat” of this hair-hopping hit!
