About Hairspray

"Hairspray is a great big hug of a show. With its catchy ‘60s songs and explosive dancing, it’s a joyful welcome back to musical theatre audiences." (LondonTheatre.co.uk)

Don’t miss the “unstoppably joyous” (The Guardian) HAIRSPRAY as MICHAEL BALL reprises his Olivier Award-winning performance in the “ultimate feel-good musical” (Attitude). The huge-hearted smash-hit is “enormous fun” (The Times) and plays at the London Coliseum until 29 September 2021.

Baltimore, 1962. Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and big dreams. Can she make it on the local TV dance show, win the heart of teen heartthrob Link Larkin and bring everyone together – whatever their colour, size or hairdo? Well if you want a change, you’ve really got to shake things up!

From the original award-winning creative team of director JACK O’BRIEN and choreographer JERRY MITCHELL, and featuring the feel-great songs Good Morning Baltimore, You Can’t Stop the Beat and Big, Blonde and Beautiful, this inspirational, fun-loving musical sensation is “an uplifting belter” (WhatsOnStage) and “the tonic we all need right now” (The Stage).

Michael Ball will NOT perform on Tuesday 17th August, Tuesday 14th September 2021
