“Hairspray” Fluffs Up TV Tonight

hairspraydownload“Hairspray Live!”, the 2002 Tony Award-winning musical about a teen who will stop at nothing to achieve her dreams and try to change the world, comes to life on television tonight at 8 PM ET on NBC direct from the Universal Studios lots in Los Angeles. I had my doubts about letting Harvey Fierstein put on the wig and makeup again. Plus, he’s hardly a household name. But the woeful casting of Travolta in the movie version taught us that few stars have what it takes to play Edna. So I’m hoping for the best.
