We are only 1 hour and 30 minutes away from NBC’s Hairspray Live. Our throwback to the 2003 Tony Award winning musical continues with the trailer to the 2007 film version. This was considered as the 1st remake of Hairspray but the 1st version inspired by the stage musical.
The 2007 film featured a full entire all star Hollywood cast including..
John Travolta as Edna Turnblad,
Nikki Blonsky (in her film debut) as Tracy Turnblad,
Christopher Walken as Wilbur Turnblad,
Zac Effron as Link Larkin,
Amanda Bynes as Penny Lou Pingleton,
Brittany Snow as Amber Von Tussle,
Michelle phiffer as Velma Von Tussle
Queen Latifah as Motormouth Mabel,
Allison Janney as Prudy Pingleton,
The film featured songs from the stage musicals plus some new songs written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. 2 of the songs from the film LADIES CHOICE and COME SO FAR will be featured in tonight’s live presentation.
The film was met with positive reviews however some people (super fans of the stage version) were not happy with Travolta’s performance of Edna.
