WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Welcome to Baltimore, 1962 -- where pop music fills the airwaves and the times, they are a-changin'. This kitschy crowd-pleaser centers on Tracy Turnblad, an overweight teen with big hair and even bigger heart, who is just dying to strut her stuff on television's hippest dance show -- despite the interference of her overbearing stage mother. A whimsical, candy-colored adaptation of John Water's notorious 1988 film, Hairspray is a feel-good musical and a subversive spoof rolled into one.
