Lizzie Bea is currently performing in the UK Tour of Kinky Boots and has just returned from Atlanta, performing in the world premiere production of Becoming Nancy (Alliance Theatre).

This revival of the musical is directed by Jack O’Brien and features choreography by Jerry Mitchell.

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!

Featuring music and lyrics by  Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman as well as a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, Hairspray includes the songs “Good Morning, Baltimore”, “Big, Blonde and Beautiful” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat”.

While further casting has yet to be announced, the creative team for this revival includes costume design by William Ivey Long and set design by David Rockwell.

Hairspray will play at the London Coliseum from the 23rd April 2020. To book tickets click here or visit: Encore TicketsSee TicketsTheatre Tickets Direct.co.ukFrom the Box Office or Last Minute.com .
