The West End’s favourite musical comedy, Hairspray, is coming to Southampton next spring!
Hairspray tells the story of Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart as she sets out to follow her extraordinary dreams, inspire her mum and win the boy she loves.
Hairspray is the musical with everything – the ultimate feel-good show which has played to sold out houses in London, on Broadway and at theatres around the globe.
Big Hair, Big Heart, Big Hit – Book Now!
It goes without saying that I would presume more venues will follow (presumably it will also do the Live Nation Theatre circuit too), so keep your eyes peeled for your local venue.
For those who have been unable to make it to the West End show yet, I’d heartily recommend that you go and see this musical – it’s an amazing experience (providing they get the casting correct of course!) and one of my favourite musicals of all time!
“Hairspray 2” is scheduled to be released in cinemas in 2010 (an awful idea in my opinion, but I shall reserve judgement until I see it), so no doubt this regional tour will tie in nicely with that!
