BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY at National Theatre Photo BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY at National Theatre

by Rich Mehrenberg - May 4, 2022

Dance the night away with Hairspray at Hershey. The musical adaption of the John Waters' film is a celebration of acceptance and individuality. Niki Metcalf stars as vibrant teen, Tracy Turnblad. Metcalf is a joyful performer who exudes confidence. Metcalf has a good voice and uses it to great effect. One minor critique is that while she is a competent dancer, her moves don't really pop like I have seen in other productions. Tracy usually sticks out (in a good way) compared to the other teens, but that just wasn't coming across. Perhaps the flaw lies the choreography, not the dancer?

HAIRSPRAY, the hit Broadway musical opened at The Fox Theater in St. Louis Tuesday evening. HAIRSPRAY is set in 1962 in segregated Baltimore. A plump young teen, Tracy Turnblad (Niki Metcalf), tries out to become a dancer on a popular Saturday afternoon show. During her five minutes of fame, Tracy takes on segregation with her new-found celebrity. Her mother, Edna (Andrew Levitt) is a self-conscious, agoraphobic housewife and a loving parent who worries that Tracy is taking on too much for a young teen. These two roles are critical to the success of HAIRSPRAY and if not perfectly cast could turn fun campy roles into odd caricatures. In the hands of Ms. Metcalf and Mr. Levitt this production quickly hits its stride and never looks back.
