HAIRSPRAY: What an experience!,
Aug 16, 2006
reviewer: from New York, USA
HAIRSPRAY is most deffinetly my most beloved musical ever, and trust me, I have seen many! HAIRSPRAY is always a new and fresh experience, time after time again I see the show. I have seen HAIRSPRAY 3 Times, Including at the Neil Simon Theatre. Lsitening to the Soundtrack, Playing the songs- whether be singing or clarinet, or listening to the soundtrack, It seems new and even more enchanting than the 1st! I highly rcommend this for anyone who likes to laugh, cry, and feel good in a show. If you like warm, big, splashy, and new things, try HAIRSPRAY!- and i tell you this now- You WONT Regret it!- Grant Pastor

We were bought tickets for this wonderful show when we visited NY, and it blew our heads off. We can't praise the show enough. All the cast were absolutely excellent, the settings were magical, the energy and vibrancy were totally infectious, the production is superb, and we - the audience- loved it. If anyone is wanting to see a show that will lift their spirits, that will inspire, that will add to the enjoyment of their life, then this is the show that they must see.We had the cd beforehand and so had heard and learned the songs, but to see the dancing/acting AND the singing was magnificent. I musy say though that to be able to sing along with Darlene Love about Pecan Pie was one of the highlights for me.Don't forget the Theatre Staff either. The guy in the booking office went out of his way to check about our tickets, and he epitomised the concern shown by all the staff.So folks, JUST SEE IT !Bathe in the warmth of the show and feel the afterglow for days afterwards.

Unbelievable Cast! Unbelievable Show!,
Jun 21, 2007
reviewer: from Fort Lauderdale, FL USA
I cannot believe how incredible the show was! I had heard so much about the current Tracy (Shannon Durig) and was hoping she would not be on vacation or something! She was on and she was amazing! Her powerful and beautiful voice was incredible. The dance moves were great! There was so much energy on stage I was exhausted by the time I left, just watching them! Of course Ashley Parker-Angel was surprisingly exceptional! The entire cast just seemed to mesh! I know there are a lot of shows on Broadway, but if you have the chance to see this one, you really should. The cast came out after the show and signed autographs for about 50 fans! From what I have seen so far in trailers for teh movie due out in July, which I am sure will be good...but it so so much fun to watch it LIVE!!! You just Can't Stop The Beat!!!!
