Review: Broadway Across Canada's Presentation of HAIRSPRAY at the National Arts Centre

The audience at the opening night performance of Broadway Across Canada’s presentation of Hairspray was buzzing with excitement.  There seemed to be more people than usual for a Tuesday night performance, maybe because Hairspray has widespread appeal or maybe just because it is the first show of the new season. Hairspray tells the story of Tracy Turnblad (Caroline Eiseman) a big girl, with big dreams, and an even bigger heart.
