The eight-time Tony Award-winning musical, HAIRSPRAY, will premiere in Malaysia and Singapore this September!
The musical was inspired by the 1988 film by John Waters of the same name. An American romantic musical comedy, it starred Ricki Lake, Divine, Debbie Harry and Sonny Bono, among others. The film became a cult classic, and in 2002, was adapted into a broadway musical.
In 2007, another film adaptation of Hairspray was released which starred John Travolta, Zac Efron and Nikki Blonsky.
HAIRSPRAY centers around Tracy Turnblad, an overweight teenager who loves dancing and is a fan of the Corny Collins Show. When one of the show’s stars leave, Corny Collins holds an audition, and with the help of her friends, Tracy makes it onto the show. Her dancing skills also attract the attention of Link Larkin, the heartthrob of the show.
However, life is not all roses for Tracy. The Corny Collins Show’s manager, Velma Von Tussle and her scheming daughter, the dance queen Amber, are not happy with the decision to have Tracy on the show. As they plot to destroy Tracy, all hell breaks loose.
HAIRSPRAY is a show that guarantees great entertainment for the whole family, so be sure not to miss it!
