One can always count on Hairspray to deliver, and that means an incredible story, an unbelievable cast, and, of course, some of the best music ever created for a stage production.

Peculiar but fat Young Tracy Turnblad of Baltimore, Maryland, in 1962, thirsts for a spot on "The Corny Collins Show." She learns some of the black students' dance routines while serving detention with them and uses them to get on Corny's show. Tracy's sudden notoriety gives her a platform from which to promote inclusivity in the press. Unfortunately, Tracy is continuously harassed by Velma, the network producer, and Amber, her popular but highly toxic daughter. After some time, Tracy is able to successfully integrate "The Corny Collins Show" with the help of likeable teen heartthrob Link, host Corny Collins, and Motormouth Maybelle (who hosts "Negro Day" on Corny's show).

In addition to its incredibly funny and charismatic performances, the uplifting message it conveys about accepting one's unusual self and moving forward is a big reason why Hairspray, winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, is still one of the most outstanding staged shows today. We become inspired and empowered by Tracy Turnblad's story that we must stand up for the rights of all people, regardless of outer differences such as race. You shouldn't lose out on this one, so buy your tickets now.
