The Big Fat Broadway Musical! Music by Marc Shaiman, Lyrics by Scott Wittman/Marc Shaiman, Book by Thomas Meehan/Mark O’Donnell
Music, dancing and big hair, it’s Hairspray! Set in 1960s Baltimore, this Broadway smash musical tells the story of lovable plus-sized teen Tracy Turnblad, a misfit who becomes a local celebrity by dancing on TV’s Corny Collins Show, and whose passion for justice transforms her into an unlikely heroine, triumphing over both snotty teen queens and racial segregation. And she does it all without denting her ‘do. The show won eight Tony Awards when it premiered in ’03, and it’s been knocking ’em dead ever since. Don’t miss this modern classic at Desert Theatreworks!
