THE BROADWAY MUSICAL
Book by Mark O’Donnell & Thomas Meehan
Music by Marc Shaiman
Lyrics by Scott Wittman & Marc Shaiman
Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters
It’s 1962 and change is coming. Tracy Turnblad is a loveable, plus-sized teen with big hair and an even bigger heart who has always dreamed of dancing on “Corny Collins Show.” When her bold moves catch Corny Collin’s eye, she is transformed overnight from a nobody to a celebrity. Along with her new friends, Tracy begins to break the mold and challenge the social prejudices of race and beauty as she seeks to integrate the show, the city, and perhaps, the world. You can’t stop the beat with this smash-hit musical comedy.
