Book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, Music by Marc Shaiman and Lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman. Matt Byrne Media, Arts Theatre, Adelaide and Shedley Theatre, Elizabeth, July 5-28, 2012.
Adelaide missed out on the professional tour of Hairspray.
With such a void to be filled, enter director/producer/actor Matt Byrne with a vibrant, joyous, exciting version of the classic show.
He said his production was based on John Waters’ original 1988 film, rather than the 2007 version which featured John Travolta.
With Byrne’s biggest cast to date, 60 performers, the show ticked all of the boxes with a fantastic ensemble cast, an innovative pastel set and a rocking 12-piece band led by Rodney Hrvatin.
