John Travolta, Zac Efron, Christopher Walken, Queen Latifah and Michelle Pfeiffer feature in the star-studded cast of Adam Shankman’s infectiously joyful musical. A 2007 remake of the John Waters classic, it’s set in 1960s Baltimore, where dance-loving teen Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky) auditions for a spot on ‘The Corny Collins Show’ and wins. Becoming an overnight celebrity and a trendsetter in dance, fun and fashion, she uses her new status as a teen sensation to try and topple Corny’s reigning dance queen and, in Civil Rights-era America, push the powers that be to bring Black kids into the previously segregated show. Retaining the high camp and trashy sweetness of Waters’ original, Hairspray is a giddy, unselfconscious and brilliantly uplifting good time.
