Hairspray

Michael Ball reprises his Olivier Award-winning role in the huge-hearted musical with maximum lift.

21 Jun–29 Sep 2021

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

The huge-hearted, smash-hit musical arrives at the magnificent London Coliseum from April 2021.

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… Don’t miss out – book now!
