It’s 1962, Baltimore. Plus-size teen Tracy Turnblad has one desire ‑ to dance on “The Corny Collins Show.” After getting her big break, she quickly sees behind the TV dance party’s glossy veneer. Can Tracy tackle the show’s racial inequality, dethrone the reigning Teen Queen and win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin – all without denting her ‘do?
[a] “sweet, infinitely spirited, bubblegum-flavored confection” – Variety
“deliriously tuneful songs…Hairspray is as sweet as a show can be without promoting tooth decay” – The New York Times
