About this show

From the tip-top of its super teased coif, to the bottom of its dynamic dancing toes, "You Can't Stop the Beat" of this Broadway musical comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight Tony awards, including Best Musical. Set in Baltimore in 1962, Hairspray is the story of the pleasantly plump teen, Tracy Turnblad, who will do whatever it takes to appear on the popular Corny Collins show and win the heart of Link Larkin, all without denting her 'do. Direct from Broadway where it's played for over 2,300 performances, Hairspray brings its hipness and hilarity to the Marriott stage.
