Hairspray is based on the 1988 New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters, who serves as a creative consultant on the musical comedy. It features an unforgettable original score by Academy Award®-winner Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan.

The plot
It's 1962—and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion: dancing. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program,The Corny Collins Show, and is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program's reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? Only inHairspray!

Awards and accolades
Winner of the 2003 Tony Award® for Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Costume Design, and more!
