You Can’t Stop the Beat! HAIRSPRAY, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy phenomenon that inspired the blockbuster film and live television event, is back on tour! Join 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad in 1960’s Baltimore as she sets out to dance her way onto TV’s most popular show. Can a girl with big dreams (and even bigger hair) change the world?
The company is led by Andrew Levitt aka Nina West (from “RuPaul’s Drag Race”) as Edna Turnblad, Niki Metcalf as Tracy Turnblad and Sandie Lee as Motormouth Maybelle. Featuring the beloved score of hit songs including "Welcome to the '60s," "Good Morning Baltimore," "It Takes Two," and incorporating "Ladies Choice" from the musical film adaption, HAIRSPRAY is "fresh, winning, and deliriously tuneful!" (The New York Times).
This all-new touring production will reunite Broadway’s award-winning creative team led by Director Jack O’Brien and Choreographer Jerry Mitchell to bring HAIRSPRAY to a new generation of theater audiences. Don’t miss this "exhilaratingly funny and warm-hearted musical comedy" (The New Yorker).

How Do I Print My Tickets At Home?
The print at home tickets will arrive in a separate email from firstname.lastname@example.org. This usually comes 5-10 minutes after the order confirmation email, and it will have the tickets attached as a PDF file. Be sure to print all pages if there are multiple tickets in the order.
Because of the attachment from an unknown email, it can sometimes be filtered as spam or junk, so we suggest checking those folders.
