Now till tonight’s NBC’s Hairspray Live, we are going to be pulling out a lot of Hairspray Throwback sharing some of the best moments during Hairspray’s time when it was here on Broadway and more.
DID YOU KNOW: Prior to becoming the first Broadway replacement “Elphaba” in WICKED The Musical, soulful powerhouse singing sensation Shoshana Bean was part of Hairspray’s original Broadway cast. She was part of the Ensemble in the role of Corny Collins council member “Shelly” and even served as the understudy for “Tracy Turnblad” . Yup, she had to wear a bodysuit to make her look like an overweight teen whenever she went on for “Tracy”. Anyway, here’s a clip of Shoshana bringing down the house with her rendition of musical’s opening song GOOD MORNING BALTIMORE.
How fantastic is Shoshana Bean?!!
