Hairspray Tickets Selling Out Fast!
The success of the show speaks for itself. In 2003, Hairspray outstandingly received thirteen Tony Award nominations. It bagged eight, making it the musical one of the most successful shows to grace Broadway. With an exciting run of 2,642 performances, it closed on 4th January 2009 and became one of the longest-running musicals of all time. Following its huge success, the show soon debuted on the West End. It received eleven Olivier Award nominations, of which it won four.

The Story of Hairspray
Step into the shoes of Edna Turnblad, mother of Tracy, an overweight high-school girl who aspires to be a famous dancer and perform on The Corny Collins Show. When she auditions for the show, Producer Velma Von Tussle is in charge as one of the core members is on a 9-month-long leave. Von Tussle rejects her attempt due to her weight, leaving her broken. Tracy meets dancer Seaweed Stubbs, who teaches her several breath-taking dance moves, which she uses at the Summer Hop and grabs the attention of Corny Collins himself. Mesmerised by her dance skills, Collins puts Tracy on his show. It leads the ego-hurt Von Tussel to try and ruin the young girl’s life.
Being a part of the show, Tracy turns into an overnight sensation and becomes hugely popular both at school and outside. This changes the life of both Edna and Tracy, and they start trying to handle the newfound fame. However, their happiness is not going to last long as things take a drastic turn. Jealous of her success, many people begin to plot against Tracy. How will she and her mother deal with them? Can they survive the hostility and retain their joy? Follow Edna and Tracy’s journey with Hairspray tickets as they fight against all odds!
