Hairspray The Musical

Look who’s back! Don’t miss Michael Ball reprising his Olivier Award-winning role as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray the Musical. 

From the original award-winning creative team of director Jack O’Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, this huge-hearted, smash-hit musical arrives at the magnificent London Coliseum from April 2021 for a strictly limited season.

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 14 weeks only. Don’t miss out – book now!

Hairspray is booking from 22 June 2021 until 29 September 2021 at the London Coliseum.

What’s the Story?

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 love 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!
