It’s Baltimore 1962, where Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, is on a mission to follow her dreams and dance her way onto national TV. Tracy’s audition makes her a local star and soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for equality, bagging local heartthrob Link Larkin along the way.

Hairspray is a musical based on the 1988 film of the same name which starred Divine and Ricki Lake by cult filmmaker John Waters. With music and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman Hairspray originally opened to rave reviews on Broadway in 2002 and subsequently won eight Tony Awards. The production opened in London at the Shaftesbury Theatre in 2007 and won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical and Best Performance in a Supporting Role. Proving to be an international success, Hairspray has also opened in South Africa, Japan, South Korea, China and Dubai. Following the musical’s phenomenal success on stage, a film of the musical was released in 2007 which starred John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer and James Marsden.

    Hi is Hairspray coming to the Bristol Hippodrome? Will be a disappoinment if it doesn’t, loss of money definetely as many people will buy tickets. Due a return as hairspray hasn’t toured since 2011 to Bristol.

    • BritishTheatre.com

      Hi, Just to advise that tickets for Hairspray in Bristol are now on sale.

  • Jo James

    Is it safe to assume this list of dates is accurate. It states Plymouth however the theatre are not admitting to this as yet. I don’t want to book Bristol and find it comes to my home town.

    • BritishTheatre.com

      The list of venues we display were advised by the producers. That said we will check with the producers on Monday and post the answer here.

  • BritishTheatre.com

    We have been in touch with the producers press representative and Leeds has been removed from the tour schedule. The version shown on this page is now updated as of today’s date. 28 July 2015

  • Carys Scfc Devil
