Why see HAIRSPRAY? This is one of the most talented and kind group of actors I have ever had the privilege to work with. Everyone is so dedicated, and I get excited each day at rehearsal seeing what they all bring to the table. It’s definitely got a lot of heart, and although this is going to be like other productions of Hairspray that you’ve seen in certain aspects, I guarantee, we are still going to bring a different perspective and a whole lot of love to that stage.
HAIRSPRAY is set in 1962 Baltimore Maryland, what can this story teach us today? This story is all about coming together and realizing that at the core, we are all the same. In today’s America, I think this story is still incredibly prevalent. Our communities need to come together in the midst of all of the tragedy that has been taking place. Our hearts are all the same, experiencing heartbreak, love, excitement, anger. At the end of the day, we as a community must bond and support one another regardless of race, size, sexual orientation, or whatever it may be.
