Photo Flash: First Look at Tuacahn's HAIRSPRAY
The musical features book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, music and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman. Tuacahn's production is directed and choreographed by Derryl Yeager.
Tracy Turnblad, the loveable plus-size heroine at the center of the story, has an unstoppable passion for dancing, and-much to her delight-she wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show." Virtually overnight she finds herself transformed from teenage outsider to local celebrity. But can this larger-than-life adolescent manage to defeat the program's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?
Hairspray is a high-energy musical comedy featuring vibrant costumes, toe-tapping music, fabulous dance numbers, and a whole lot of heart. Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, this homage to one of the greatest eras of American music will delight old and young alike.Photo credit: Lily Lim
