Head for the glittering London Coliseum and sing your heart out at the latest production of Hairspray the Musical, once again starring the brilliant Michael Ball as the big, blonde and beautiful Edna Turnblad. It's a warm-hearted, highly entertaining romp of a show that's on for a strictly limited season of just three months, starting in April 2020. The plot? It's 1962 and the setting is Baltimore. Tracy Turnblad is a big girl whose hair is even bigger. She's dedicated to becoming a star, a girl who dreams about dancing every minute of the day. When she appears on a local TV show she becomes a star, in a small way, in her area. Will her fame help her capture the heart of her teen idol, Link Larkin, and bring everyone together? Come along and see for yourself.

Show tunes like Good Morning Baltimore, You Can’t Stop the Beat and Big, Blonde and Beautiful will inspire you, and the uplifting plot will leave you feeling happy for days afterwards. Michael Ball's wonderful voice will haunt you for weeks afterwards.... in a good way! Jack O’Brien Directs again and Jerry Mitchell is once more responsible for the awesome choreography. The book is by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan and the music comes from Marc Shaiman, who also wrote the lyrics along with Scott Wittman. Michael Ball, of course, plays Edna Turnblad to perfection, as you'd expect. Don't miss this show, an experience that long ago became a legend in our world.
