BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY at Hershey Theatre Photo BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY at Hershey 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?

BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY SINGS AT BROADWAY SAN JOSE at Broadway San Jose Photo BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY SINGS AT BROADWAY SAN JOSE at Broadway San Jose
by Linda Hodges - Nov 26, 2021

It’s 1962 and perky, pretty and plump teen Tracy Turnblad has dance moves that will never be seen unless she can find a way to get on the local teen dance show, “The Corny Collins Show.” Niki Metcalf shines as the effervescent, strong and kind Tracy Turnblad who dares to cross boundaries (she’s often in detention for her big hair-don’t) to stay true to herself. Playing now thru November 28th at Broadway San Jose, there’s still time to get your tickets and be carried away on dance wave of laughter and music from a phenomenal show with a stellar cast.
