Hairspray is coming to the famous Hollywood Bowl in California this weekend, August 5th-7th!
The cast is sensational, including two of the original Broadway stars: Marissa Jaret Winokur (Tracy Turnblad) and Harvey Fierstein (Edna Turnblad). Other members of the cast include Nick Jonas (Link Larkin), John Stamos (Corny Collins), Diana DeGarmo (Penny Pingleton), Drew Carey (Wilbur Turnblad), Corbin Bleu (Seaweed J. Stubbs), Michael McDonald (Mr. Pinky), Mo Gaffney (Prudy Pingleton), Darlene Love (Motormouth Maybelle), and Tara Macri (Amber Von Tussle).
Hairspray is one of my absolute favorite movies, and I have been wanting to see the show live for many years. I am so thrilled to be going this Sunday at the Bowl! There are two versions of the film. The original starred Ricki Lake in 1988, and the 2007 re-make starred Nikki Blonsky, John Travolta, Zac Efron, Amanda Bynes, Brittany Snow, and James Marsden, etc:
Hairspray is set in Baltimore, in the 1960s. For a better idea of what the story is about, here is the 2007 trailer:
Hopefully, many of you will be able to make it to the Hollywood Bowl this weekend! For tickets, visit ticketmaster.com.
