I saw the same cast tonight! Were you there in the afternoon?

I LOVED Chelsea as Tracy and we had an understudy for Motormouth. They were both great!

Yeah. I saw it this afternoon. I loved Chelsea as Tracy as well. I just realized I didn't say ANYTHING about her performance in this review, but she was great.

Was Lisa Linette playing Motormouth? I thought she was an understudy too since they had her name on the board, but when I looked in the program, her name was in there as Motormouth. That confused me a little.

Hmm, I just checked my picture of the understudy board and it said she was an understudy. But in the playbill it credits her as full-time lead. I thought (for an understudy) she was pretty good.

Yeah, that's very strange that her name was on both.

Sorry for the double post, but I just thought I'd add something to my review of Lisa Linette as Motormouth. She was definitely my least favorite Motormouth (that I've seen).

I just saw the tour as well on the 4th. Perhaps I should do a review too. The actors playing Seaweed and Motormouth are brand new. At my show they didn't even have the playbills changed yet, it just had they're names on the board like they were understudies. There have been a lot of understudies lately. Everyone has been getting sick.

Yeah. I figured Motormouth was new since they did have her name in the Playbill, and I wasn't sure about Seaweed. They still had Christian White's name in there, but both names were on the board.

Thanks for the info.

Re: Hairspray on Tour Review - 2/8/09


I felt that Lisa was a great Motormouth in my openinon. having seen all the tour motormouths my rating would have to be:
1.Angela Birchett
2.Lisa Linette
3.Yvette Monique Clark
4.Debra Evans

Ariel is one of my favorite Velmas Ever- i saw the show almost 2 months after you did so she may have improved during that time.

I think Ariel may have been sick, at this performance. I've seen some videos, and she was much, much better.
