Hairspray playing in Chicago!


 Looks like Hairspray has found a new home at the Marriott theater.

http://www.marriotttheatre.com/show.aspx?show=10

It doesn't look like much information has been released like the cast or anything.

Marissa Perry said something on Facebook about her and Constantine doing Hairspray Chicago together.

This is very exciting!

Yeah, when I saw Marissa's Facebook post, I flipped! I hope I can make it to Chicago to see it, although I don't live very close. =/

It's my home state, but I don't live there now and I'm moving even farther away later this month. We'll see if I ever get a chance to see it.

Re: Hairspray playing in Chicago!


The Marriott Theatre's Production was Amazing!!
Marissa Perry (Tracy)- was just as good as she was on Broadway. She had a smile on her face the entire time and looked like she was having a blast. Her voice was great.

Ross Lehman (Edna)- it took me a minute to get used to his Edna, but once i did, i love him. he was great

Hollis Resnik (Velma)-was Perfect- her voice was very strong and she was funny too.

E. Faye Butler (Maybelle)- Loved her Motormouth, at some points she sounded just like Jenifer Lewis and her IKWIB was steller.

Billy Tighe (Link)- i had heard Constantine was in the role but wasent mentioned anywhere i the playbill. Billy had a great voice and alot of Energy.

Heidi Kettenring (Penny)- loved her. She was a great Penny and had lots of comedic timing and a good singer too.

Johanna Miller (Amber)- Was very good but she seemed alittle to old to play Amber, she sounded a little horse too.

Josh Breckinridge (Seaweed)- was great and had lots of energy and was a great dancer.

George Wolfe (Corny)- was good, nothing spectaular but good.

The rest of the cast was amazing. The whole show was pretty much flawless. The theatre itself was actually quite small. It was neat to see the show as a in the round experiance again. We had Second row seats but i moved up to the front row becuase nobody was sitting in the seat infront of me, though i couldent convince my mother to move up with me as she was too afraid that the actors might fall off the stage and onto us (You were soo close you could touch them- i got spit on (accidently) by the MAF during the dentention scene.
