About this show

Hairspray the Musical is back and starring the West End’s hottest couple! Don’t miss Michael Ball reprising his Olivier Award-winning role as Edna Turnblad alongside star of Have I Got News For You, Paul Merton, as husband Wilbur. The huge-hearted, smash-hit musical arrives at the magnificent London Coliseum from 23 April for a strictly limited 18-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 18 weeks only. Don’t miss out – book now!
