With two super-hit film versions in 1988 and 2007 and a multiple Tony-winning Broadway musical in 2002, this tale continues to resonate with many generations.

Meanwhile, Hairspray Live! revisits the Baltimore of the 60s where we meet Tracy Turnblad, a small-town girl who becomes an overnight success after appearing on a TV dance show. The story goes on to show how she deals with her sudden popularity and the inequality she sees in the entertainment world.

Directed by Kenny Leon and with a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the musical boasts of a dream cast, including Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson.
