The musical's delightful score, which includes "Welcome to the '60s" and the infectious "You Can't Stop the Beat," takes Tracy from the stage of a 1960's dance show to a downtown R&B record shop and along the streets of Baltimore.

Hairspray is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
Welcome to the '60s! The stuffy 1950s are over and change is in the air. Baltimore's Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and a bigger heart, has just one passion, and that's to dance. Tracy wins a place on a local television dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" and, overnight, she is transformed from an outsider to a teen celeb. But can a trendsetter in dance beat the show's reigning queen, win the favor of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a popular TV show without denting her 'do? Only in Hairspray!
