Years ago, when life was simpler, me and my girlfriends would spend the whole day at the picture show eating peanut brittle, laughing at John Waters’ moving picture show Hairspray.
Many years later, before most of you can even remember, they turned it into a show on Broadway! It warms my heart that after so many years they’re remaking the classic show based on the classic film once again. And this time for film! Every generation has their Tracy Turnblad. Mine was a budding young starlet by the name of Ricki Lake. Could the next Tracy Turnblad be you?
