Hairspray Live! makes its way to Indian television


Zee Theatre brings the smash hit musical Hairspray Live! to Indian viewers. This live version, to be screened on TataPlay Theatre on June 26 at 2 pm and 8 pm, respectively, was watched by over nine million viewers and went on to win three Emmy awards in 2016.

With two super-hit film versions in 1988 and 2007 and a multiple Tony-winning Broadway musical in 2002, this tale continues to resonate with many generations.

Meanwhile, Hairspray Live! revisits the Baltimore of the 60s where we meet Tracy Turnblad, a small-town girl who becomes an overnight success after appearing on a TV dance show. The story goes on to show how she deals with her sudden popularity and the inequality she sees in the entertainment world.

Directed by Kenny Leon and with a score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the musical boasts of a dream cast, including Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson.
