, went with a male friend to the movies to see the Bourne flick, and somehow were sold tickets to Hairspray---which we didn't realize until we were two or three minutes into the film! First thinking that it was some kind of preview, then that they were showing a 1962 headline to set up some kind of Bourne backstory---but we both loved it. My friend wasn't even a dancer in high school or college, but still loved it. Never saw the original movie or stage play so can't compare, but we both lived through the era portrayed and felt the music was right on target in sounding like the different types of music we heard back then. Travolta's still got the moves, even though in all that latex he must have been sweating up a storm in the faster numbers, and Queen L. has a terrific voice. All the teen characters were great... really all the actors were great. Very, very enjoyable show...and very upbeat and happy making.
