You can’t stop the beat! Hairspray Live! is bringing bouffant 'dos, petticoats, and great dance moves to television this December.
NBC is broadcasting a live version of the Broadway show (2002) and movie musical (2007) about Tracy Turnblad, a pluz-size teen living in Baltimore in the early '60s. She lands a spot on a popular teen dance show and uses her popularity and fame to help the cause of racial integration.
Hairspray Live! stars newcomer Maddie Baillio as Tracy and Harvey Fierstein as Tracy’s mom, Edna (reprising his role from the Broadway stage show). Click through this slideshow to see exclusive new portraits of the cast decked out in colorful getups from costume designer Mary Vogt.
