Synopsis


Look who's back!


Don't miss Michael Ball reprising his Olivier Award-winning role as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray the Musical.


The huge-hearted, smash-hit musical arrives at the magnificent London Coliseum from April 2020 for a strictly limited 12-week season.


Baltimore, 1962.


Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and big dreams.


Can she make it on the local TV dance show, win the heart of teen heartthrob Link Larkin and bring everyone together - whatever their colour, size or hairdo?


Well if you want a change, you've really got to shake things up!


From the original award-winning creative team of director Jack O'Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, and featuring the infectiously feel-good songs Good Morning Baltimore, You Can't Stop the Beat and Big, Blonde and Beautiful this inspirational, fun-loving and fabulously uplifting musical sensation is back and bigger than ever.


It's the show that gives maximum lift … but for 12 weeks only.
