Lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman

In German

A collaboration with the Theater Dortmund

Baltimore, 1962. For Tracy, everything revolves around the “Corny Collins Show”. Every day, the “Nicest Kids in Town” perform the latest dance routines. Tracy's dearest wish is to be part of the troupe just once in her life, but it seems she is too fat, too rebellious. One day she stays behind after the performance and watches her black friends practising their cool dance steps – and she gets a chance to show what she’s capable of, unlike her friends, who are prevented by racial segregation from appearing on the TV show. The system has reckoned without Tracy, though. This cult musical is a powerful statement against any form of discrimination.

„Knackig, mitreißend, sentimental und mit Schwung: Das knallige Sechziger-Jahre-Musical „Hairspray“ am Nürnberger Opernhaus feiert das bunte Leben und reißt nebenher hochaktuelle Themen an.“

Uwe Mitsching, Nürnberger Nachrichten

BR24

„Für Sixties-Fans sowieso ein Muss, und auch für alle, die in diesen eher beschwerlichen Zeiten mal für drei Stunden rauskommen wollen aus ihrem ganz persönlichen Baltimore.“

Peter Jungblut, BR24

BR Schlager

„Insgesamt bietet Hairspray in Nürnberg drei Stunden Musicalspaß vom Feinsten.“

Markus Wagner, BR Schlager
