I'm sorry. I'm a big fan of tacky, so I am laughing my ass off.

Oh my gosh in every way. I love that the Dynamites are named after the Broadway actors and not Peaches/Cindy Watkins/Pearl. And who are Samaire and Cynthia, did they replace Gilbert? So many questions!

Quello pathetic. Un esempio fine di come determinate parti del

This link was posted before. I can't find the thread though. The way the characters look is scary. I wonder how it is.

It's okay, we all do that sometime...I couldn't even find it in the search threads. But I remember seeing it before. Did you see some of the other shows Italy has put on by clicking on some cast members' bios?

This made me laugh so hard I think something popped.


This should be posted as often as possible.

I've never felt so proud to be Italian than right now. re: Hairspray in Italian

I love that Seaweed's name in Italian becomes "Flipper J. Stubbs."


ETA: Oh, SNL beat me to it. Still - it seems a dolphin is a very odd leap from algae. And now I can't get that damn song out of my head - "They call him Flipper!/Flipper!"

I really hope Marc or the MD found a way to sneak it in somewhere. Maybe a funkified version in the "Run And Tell That" dance break?

It may seem odd that someone who co-wrote the SOUTH PARK movie would have trouble with people finding humor in something in extreme bad taste, but these pictures disgust and infuriate me.

How a bootleg version of the show got on is bad enough. But to see these horrifically racist photographs attached to something I have anything to do with repulses me. I guess I have finally found out there are some things that just aren't funny. At least to me. And, I dare say (or hope) not to a LOT of other people.

And if anyone ever sees ANYTHING like this out there in cyberworld pertaining to HAIRSPRAY, please PM me so I can contact our lawyers to put a stop to it right away.

The pictures in this thread are an example of something I hope the moderator or Craig or Rob will flush away from this board. I am even sorry to be writing this, knowing it will bring this thread back to the top of the board. From the bottom of my heart, I plead that no one else write on this thread. Let these images die.
