FIRST LOOK: The Tony and Olivier Award winning smash hit Hairspray is set to dance its way back to London's West End in 2021 as Live Theater continues its road to a comeback.
We are so happy to share with you all a DEBUT sneak peak performance of this new highly anticipated revival. Here is the unforgettable talents of….
The legendary West End favorite Michael Ball (who will be reprising his 2008 Olivier winning performance from the show's original West End debut) as the greatest caring, insecure, cautious, stern, and loving mother of them all "Edna Turnblad",
newcomer Lizzie Bea as the dreamy, talented, passionate, determined, and toe tapping "Tracy Turnblad",
Broadway and West End favorite Marisha Wallace as the sassy, caring, strong-willed, and of course BIG BLONDE AND BEAUTIFUL record shop owner "Motormouth Mabel",
Stage and Screen favorite Rita Simons as the show's mischievous, scheming, and racist MISS BALTIMORE CRABS herself "Velma Von Tussel",
and members of the cast
….. joining together live on the Semi-Finals of Britain's Got Talent (and social distancing) with a medley of the show's beloved opener GOOD MORNING BALTIMORE and the toe-tapping finale number YOU CAN'T STOP THE BEAT.
As previously announced, this new revival of HAIRSPRAY will be a remounting of the show's legendary original production that wowed audiences on Broadway for 6 1/2 years and 3 years in London's West End. It's directed by Tony winner Jack O'Brien and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell. It will be grooving into the legendary London Coliseum for a 19 week engagement from April 22nd- August 28th, 2021.
