"Hairspray" is a musical with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, based on the 1988 John Waters movie "Hairspray". The songs include 1960s-style dance music and "downtown" rhythm and blues. In 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream is to dance on "The Corny Collins Show", a local TV dance program based on the real-life "Buddy Deane Show". When Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight. She then launches a campaign to racially integrate the show. ‘’Hairspray’’ is a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s.

The musical's original Broadway production opened in 2002 and won eight Tony Awards out of thirteen nominations. As of April 2008, it has played for over 2,300 performances. "Hairspray" has also enjoyed U.S. national tours and numerous foreign productions and was adapted for a 2007 musical film. The London West End production was nominated for a record-setting eleven Laurence Olivier Awards, winning for Best New Musical and in three other categories.


According to interviews included as an extra feature on the 2007 film's DVD release, theatre producer Margo Lion first conceived of "Hairspray" as a stage musical in 1998 after seeing a television broadcast of the original film. She contacted John Waters, who gave her his blessing, then acquired the rights from New Line Cinema. Lion contacted Marc Shaiman, who expressed interest in the project only if his partner Scott Wittman could be included, and Lion agreed. The two submitted three songs – one of which, "Good Morning Baltimore," eventually became the show's opening number. Based on their initial work, Lion was confident that she had hired the right team. [ [ "New York Times" article, Robin Pogrebin, October 16, 2002] ]

Lion contacted Rob Marshall about directing the musical. At the time he was involved in negotiations to direct the screen adaptation of "Chicago", but he agreed to become involved in the early development stages of "Hairspray" with the stipulation he would drop out if assigned the film. Marshall remembered Marissa Jaret Winokur from her brief appearance in the film "American Beauty" and arranged a meeting with Shaiman and Wittman. The two immediately felt she was right for the role of Tracy Turnblad but were hesitant to commit without seeing any other auditions. They hired Winokur to work with them on the project with the understanding she might be replaced later. One year later, Winokur was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Certain she would lose the role if the creative team learned about her condition, she underwent chemotherapy and a hysterectomy without telling anyone but her immediate family. The treatment and surgery were successful, and Winokur returned to the project. [ [ undated interview] ] Meanwhile, Marshall had started work on "Chicago", and Jack O'Brien and Jerry Mitchell were hired by Lion to direct and choreograph, respectively. Winokur was told she would need to audition along with hundreds of other women, but when the two men met her, they agreed she was right for the role.Fact|date=May 2008

Tracy's mother had been portrayed by Divine in the original film, and Shaiman liked the idea of maintaining the tradition of casting a male as Edna Turnblad. He suggested Harvey Fierstein based primarily on Fierstein's distinctive sounding voice, and O'Brien agreed.Fact|date=May 2008

According to Shaiman, one song, "I Know Where I've Been", became controversial during the genesis of the score::"This was... inspired by a scene late in the [1988] movie that takes place on the black side of town. It never dawned on us that a torrent of protest would follow us from almost everyone involved with the show. 'It’s too sad.... It’s too preachy.... It doesn’t belong.... Tracy should sing the eleven o'clock number.' We simply didn’t want our show to be yet another show-biz version of a civil rights story where the black characters are just background. And what could be more Tracy Turnblad-like than to give the 'eleven o'clock number' to the black family at the heart of the struggle? Luckily... the audiences embraced this moment, which enriches the happy ending to follow, and it is our proudest achievement of the entire experience of writing Hairspray" ["The Roots", p. 142]


After a tryout at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre, the musical opened on Broadway on August 15, 2002 at the Neil Simon Theatre, where it is still running. In addition to Winokur and Fierstein, the cast featured Laura Bell Bundy, Kerry Butler and Dick Latessa. The sets were designed by David Rockwell, costumes by William Ivey Long; lighting by Kenneth Posner and the many distinctive wigs in the show by Paul Huntley. It has been announced that the Broadway production "is expected to close in mid-January 2009", with original star Fierstein to return for the final performances. [Jones, Kenneth. [ "Hairspray Likely to Close in January; Fierstein Will Return",], October 2, 2008]

The First U.S. national tour started in September 2003 in Baltimore and ended in June 2006. The touring production starred Carly Jibson as Tracy and Bruce Vilanch as Edna. [ [ playbill article, July 22, 2003] ] When the tour stopped in Los Angeles, Marissa Jaret Winokur reprised her role as Tracy, together with the original Broadway Link, Matthew Morrison. [ [ "Hairspray Teases LA" (BroadwayWorld)] ]

The first international production ran for 245 performances in Toronto in 2005 at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Vanessa Olivarez, a former "American Idol" contestant, starred as Tracy, and Jay Brazeau starred as Edna. [ [ Information about the 2005 Toronto production] ]

A Las Vegas production ran at the Luxor Hotel in 2006 starring Katrina Rose Dideriksen as Tracy, with Fierstein and Latessa reprising their roles as Edna and Wilbur Turnblad, respectively. This ninety-minute version was played in one act. Cut songs included "The Big Dollhouse", "(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs", "Velma's Revenge", "Good Morning Baltimore (Reprise)", and "Cooties". [ [ Interview with Marc Shaiman on 90 Minute version] ]

In July 2006, a Non-Equity U.S. tour opened in Atlantic City's Harrah's Casino. The shorter "casino version" was used for this stop of the tour, but when it moved on, it continued with the full version of the show minus the character of Lorraine. The tour is scheduled to continue at least through June 2008. [ [ Official U.S. tour website] ]

In 2007, "Hairspray" was adapted as a musical film starring Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad and John Travolta as Edna Turnblad (see Main Article).

The London West End production opened at the Shaftesbury Theatre on October 11, 2007 for previews before its official opening on October 30. Michael Ball plays Edna, with Mel Smith as Wilbur Turnblad, newcomer Leanne Jones as Tracy, Tracie Bennett as Velma, Paul Manuel as Corny Collins, Rachael Wooding as Amber, Elinor Collett as Penny, and Ben James-Ellis as Link. The original creative team of the Broadway production, helmed by director Jack O'Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, reunited for the London production. [ [ "Hairspray Begins London Run" Oct. 11, (playbill) 10/11/07] ] This production garnered a record-setting eleven Olivier Award nominations [ [ article, Feb. 6, 2008, London Hairspray Breaks Record With 11 Olivier Award Nominations] ] and won for Best New Musical, as well as acting awards for Best Actress and Actor in a musical (Jones and Ball). [ [ Official London Theatre article, March 9, 2008] ]

The South African production opened in Johannesburg in October 2007 with the original direction and choreography re-created by Matt Lenz and Greg Graham, but the sets and costumes were new designs by Michael Bottari and Ronald Case. Other productions have opened in Canada, Finland, Japan, South Korea, and Italy. The Swiss/German-language premiere of "Hairspray" opened in St. Gallen, Switzerland at the Theater St. Gallen on March 15, 2008. A Brazilian production is slated to open later in the year, with another production in November in Manila, Philippines at the Star Theatre. [ [ "Hairspray" in Manila] ]

A production in Buenos Aires, Argentina opened on July 16, 2008 starring Enrique Pinti as Edna Turnblad.

Setting: Baltimore, Maryland, June 1962

;Act 1As "pleasantly plump" teenager Tracy Turnblad lies in bed, she muses about her love for her hometown, her love of dancing and desire to be famous ("Good Morning Baltimore"). After school, Tracy rushes home with best friend Penny to catch "The Nicest Kids in Town" on the local teenage dance show, "The Corny Collins Show". Edna, Tracy’s shy and plus-sized mother, is ironing and complains about the noise of the music coming from the television, while Penny's mother complains about it being race music. After an announcement that auditions for a place on the show will be held, Tracy pleads with her mother for permission to audition. Her mother, fearing that she will be laughed at due to her weight, refuses. Penny and Amber have similar arguments with their mothers ("Mama, I’m a Big Girl Now"). After gaining permission from her father, Tracy auditions for the show and bumps into teenage heartthrob, Link Larkin, which leads into a dream sequence ("I Can Hear the Bells"). Velma Von Tussle rejects Tracy from the audition because of her size ("(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs").

Back at school, Tracy is sent to detention again for her hair “obstructing everyone’s view of the blackboard”. There she meets black dancer, Seaweed, who teaches her several dance moves. She uses the new dance steps at the Sophomore Hop the next day to introduce herself to Corny Collins, later integrating the moves into "The Madison" during the scene transition. Corny sees how well Tracy can dance and he gives her a place on the show ("The Nicest Kids in Town (Reprise)"). Corny offers the chance for Link to sing "It Takes Two" to her and she quickly accepts, much to Amber's dismay. After the show, Mr. Spritzer, the show's worrisome sponsor, appeals to Velma who threatens to fire Corny over Tracy's appointment to the Council, eventually leaving a distraught Velma determined to ruin Tracy ("Velma's Revenge"). At the Turnblad house, Edna is receiving calls from fans who saw Tracy on the show. A call comes in from Mr. Pinky of the plus size dress shop, Mr. Pinky’s Hefty Hideaway—Quality Clothes for Quantity Gals, for an endorsement. Tracy pleads with her mother to come with her and act as her agent although Edna has not left their apartment in years. Finally making it outside, Edna is given a huge makeover, as she is told, "Welcome to the 60's". Tracy becomes the spokes-girl for the shop.

Signs of Tracy's fame are evident in the school yard, with graffiti on the walls and another Council Member sporting Tracy's signature 'do. Link comforts Tracy after a game of dodge ball in which Amber knocks Tracy unconscious when she viciously throws the ball at her head. Penny and Seaweed, who have developed a liking for one another, return after having found the nurse out sick. Seaweed, suggesting that some fun would make Tracy feel better, invites all of them to Motormouth Maybelle’s Record Shop for a platter party ("Run and Tell That!"). At the shop, Tracy rallies everyone to march against the station, as African Americans are not allowed on the show except for the once-a-month Negro Day. Link decides not to march, as it could jeopardize his career, leaving Tracy hurt and confused. As they march against the station, they are arrested ("Big, Blonde, and Beautiful").

;Act 2Almost all of the women are now in "The Big Dollhouse". Because of Velma’s dirty tactics, the governor pardons and releases Velma and Amber Von Tussle. Wilbur bails out the remaining people, excluding Tracy who is forced to remain in jail by another of Velma's manipulation. Tracy is alone and wishes that Link could be with her ("Good Morning Baltimore (Reprise)"). At the Har-De-Har Hut, Wilbur and Edna are down and out because of all of the money that it cost them to bail everyone out and with Tracy still in prison. Edna sympathizes with her daughter's dream – she had dreamt of making her "own line of queen-sized dress patterns". She and Wilbur reminisce about their past and how they can never be parted from each other ("(You're) Timeless to Me").

During the night, Link sneaks into the jail where he finds Tracy in solitary confinement. Penny is punished by her mother for going to jail without her permission and is tied up in her bedroom where Seaweed comes to rescue her. Both couples declare their love for one another ("Without Love"). After escaping from their respective prisons, the couples seek refuge at Motormouth Maybelle’s Record Shop. Tracy thinks that it is unfair that after all of their hard work, "The Corny Collins Show" is still segregated. They devise a plan to help integrate the show, and Motormouth remembers their long fight for equality ("I Know Where I’ve Been").

On the day of the Miss Teenage Hairspray competition, Corny Collins starts the show with a song ("(It's) Hairspray"). Amber shows off her talents in a bid to get more votes from the viewers ("Cooties"). Just as the results are about to be announced, Tracy takes over the stage, and is joined by Link, Penny (now transformed from drool to cool), Seaweed, Edna, Wilbur, Inez, and Motormouth ("You Can’t Stop the Beat"). Tracy is announced the winner of the competition and she declares "The Corny Collins Show" to be officially integrated. When all is announced, Mr. Spritzer runs on stage thrilled with the public's response to the telecast. At the height of the moment, the company invites Amber and Velma to join the celebration.

Additional songs

Several songs were cut from "Hairspray" during its pre-Broadway run in Seattle. One of such songs, an infomercial about safety on the road titled "Blood on the Pavement", followed "The Nicest Kids in Town". "Blood on the Pavement" was eventually discarded but was included on the cast album. Originally, where "(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs" is in the show today, there was not any song. In the following revisions, many songs filled the slot including "The Status Quo", and "Velma's Cha-Cha" (and its short reprise), sung during Tracy's audition and dismissal, were cut and replaced by "(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs", as the audience did not like seeing Tracy being verbally attacked after "I Can Hear the Bells". ["The Roots", p. 59] After the auditions, there was a scene in the Har-De-Har Hut in which Wilbur had a song called "It Doesn't Get Better than This". The song was later replaced by "Positivity"; the song and scene were later cut altogether from the final product as it was felt that it simply was not needed. In the scene, Wilbur tried to cheer up Tracy after her expulsion from "The Corny Collins Show" auditions. ["The Roots", p. 62] After Tracy eventually made it on the show, there was a song called "The New Girl in Town", which was sung first by the African-American girls and then by the Council girls. Although cut from the musical, it was included in the 2007 movie and is used in the instrumental score during the show. [ Review of "Hairspray" during its pre-Broadway run] "The Mother-Daughter Cha-Cha-Cha" was another cut number that originally followed "Big, Blonde, and Beautiful". Later, the protest rally in the scene was incorporated into "Big, Blonde, and Beautiful", thus deleting the number and the scene. ["The Roots", p. 109] A song called "Step on Up" was also cut in favor of "I Know Where I've Been". ["The Roots", pp. 142-43] Early on in the genesis of the show, the plot involved a "Miss Auto Show" competition, as it is in the 1988 film, instead of "Miss Teenage Hairspray". For this competition, there was a song called "Take a Spin" sung by Corny in the place where "(It's) Hairspray" is now. ["The Roots", p. 149] After Amber's rendition of "Cooties", it was thought that Tracy should have her own song before the finale number "You Can't Stop the Beat", called "It Ain't Over 'Til the Fat Lady Sings". After the third reading of the show, however, it was decided that "You Can't Stop the Beat" was sufficient and the song was dropped. The number, however, was restored as a track on the Special Edition of the motion picture's soundtrack. [Dear Listener, Note included in the Special Edition of the 2007 Hairspray Movie Soundtrack]

According to "Variety", "Hairspray" received 13 favorable and 4 mixed reviews. ["Variety", September 23, 2002 - September 29, 2002, "Critics' Taly" [sic] , Legit., p. 88] Charles Isherwood, in his "Variety" review wrote: "...this sweet, infinitely spirited, bubblegum-flavored confection won't be lacking for buyers any time soon. Arriving in an aerosol fog of advance hype, it more than lives up to its promise." ["Variety", August 16, 2002, p. 2] Ben Brantley wrote: "So what if it's more than a little pushy in its social preaching? Stocked with canny, deliriously tuneful songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and directed by Jack O'Brien with a common touch that stops short of vulgarity, 'Hairspray' is as sweet as a show can be without promoting tooth decay. ... [it] succeeds in recreating the pleasures of the old-fashioned musical comedy without seeming old-fashioned. ...Shaiman... is taking the infectious hooks and rhythms from period pop and R&B and translating them into the big, bouncy sound that Broadway demands.... And while the savvy arrangements... nod happily to Motown, Elvis, Lesley Gore ballads and standards like "Higher and Higher," the score's appeal isn't nostalgic. It's music that builds its own self-contained, improbably symmetrical world...." ["New York Times", Ben Brantley, August 16, 2002, Section E, Part 1, Column 1] New York's "Daily News" wrote, "As Tracy, Marissa Jaret Winokur has the heft, the pipes and an enormously appealing stage presence. Her dancing may not be as special as the plot suggests, but she wins your heart... With this role, Fierstein places himself in the great line of Broadway divas." [Kissel, Howard. New York "Daily News", August 16, 2002, p. 55]

Box office and business
