You can’t stop the beat! Hairspray, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy phenomenon is back on tour! Join 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad in 1960s Baltimore as she sets out to dance her way onto TV’s most popular show. Can a girl with big dreams—and even bigger hair—change the world? 

The Hairspray company is led by Andrew Levitt, a.k.a. Nina West (RuPaul’s Drag Race), as Edna Turnblad and Niki Metcalf as Tracy Turnblad, and features the beloved score of hit songs including “Welcome to the 60s,” “Good Morning Baltimore” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat.” 

This all-new touring production reunites Broadway’s award-winning creative team led by director Jack O’Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell to bring Hairspray to a new generation of theater audiences. 

“If life were everything it should be, it would be more like Hairspray. It’s irresistible!”
— The New York Times
