I’ve already reflected on this fantastic production a few posts ago. And now, here is a snippet of my admittedly wordy review. (I just had so much to say!)
The moment Tracy Turnblad (played by the radiant Marissa Perry) opens her eyes, jumps out of bed, and starts singing the virtues of another Baltimore morning, you’re hooked. Perry, along with the company of Marriott Theatre’s sparkling new production of Hairspray, kicks off one of the most entertaining evenings you’re likely to encounter this theatrical season or next.
Quite simply: Marriott has a hit on their hands.
