Michael Ball reprises his starring role as Edna Turnblad in Jack O’Brien and Jerry Mitchell's original award-winning production of hit musical Hairspray which returns to the West End in April 2020 for a strictly limited twelve week season at the London Coliseum.
Based on John Waters' 1988 film of the same name, the show is set in Baltimore in 1962 and follows the fortunes of pleasantly plump high school student Tracy Turnblad, who is transformed overnight from outsider to teen celebrity when she wins a spot on the local TV dance programme, the Corny Collins Dance Show.
Can Tracy vanquish the programme's reigning princess Amber Von Tussle, win the love of heartthrob Link Larkin, and spark social change campaigning for the show's integration - all without denting her hairdo?
Featuring the infectiously feel-good songs Good Morning Baltimore, You Can’t Stop the Beat and Big, Blonde and Beautiful this inspirational and uplifting hit production is back and bigger than ever!
