HAIRSPRAY is a musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, and a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan. The songs include 1960’s style dance music and ‘downtown’ rhythm and blues. In 1962 Baltimore, Tracy Turnblad, our loveable plus-sized heroine with big hair and a kind heart, has only one passion — to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, The Corny Collins Show and is quickly transformed into a teen celebrity. Tracy then successfully sets out to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, win the heart of the super handsome Link Larkin, and racially integrate the television show.
