The Australian version of "Hairspray The Musical" opened on Oct 2nd in Melbourne.
Shown at the Princess theatre, we were only 5 rows from the front! The last and first musical I saw was "Mamma Mia", we were seated on the second level mid way, so seeing the expressions on the actors faces was a little bit difficult, compared to last night..
If you enjoyed the movie version , you'll definitely enjoy the on stage musical. The set used large digital screens very cleverly throughout, and the colours and costumes were fantastic!!
SYTYCD Australian winner Jack Chambers played Link. Now we know he can dance! But who knew he could sing!
The whole show was great, lots of laughs throughout never a dull moment. Loved the dancing, music, singing, costumes... Well loved it all!
