You Can't Stop the Beat in this BIG, Broadway Musical!

It's 1962, and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one desire - to dance on the popular "Corny Collins Show." When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power and the help of a crazy cast of characters, to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network, all without denting her 'do! This production features hits such as "Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now," "You Can't Stop the Beat," and "Good Morning Baltimore." Don't miss Hairspray, Broadway's musical-comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture and won eight 2003 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
