Soul, ’60s energy and enough Aqua Net to supply the Country Music Awards for a decade.
These are just three of the key ingredients that make “HAIRSPRAY” work. The eight-time Tony Award-winning musical follows Tracy Tumblad, a teen in 1960s Baltimore looking to fulfill her dream of being on the “Corny Collins Dance Show.” But along the way, new friendships, insights and dance moves guide her towards a far loftier goal: racial integration.
Equal parts style and substance, the message of “HAIRSPRAY” is as relevant as ever in 2023. The show runs May 30-June 4 and you can purchase tickets here.
