Hairspray: This iconic musical attacks issues of racism, inequality, stereotyping and political activism with big hair, big bodies, big dreams and undeniable spirit. Living in 1962 blue-collar Baltimore, teenage dance enthusiast Tracy Turnblad defies her mother's hard working realism and auditions for the wildly popular Corny Collins Show. Rejected by egotistic producer Velma von Tussle and her teen queen daughter Amber for her weight, Tracy ends up catching Corny's attention at a local school dance with her energetic moves. Once on the show, Tracy takes Baltimore by storm, eventually winning over heartthrob Link Larkin and mobilizing the city's youth to fight television segregation. With the support of her shy, overprotected friend Penny Pingleton, “Negro Day” star dancer Seaweed and his show host mother Motormouth Maybelle, Tracy re-inspires her mother Edna's confidence and forcefully integrates the nationally aired Miss Hairspray Competition. Music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, Book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan.
