Get ready for something big at the Orpheum

April 26, 2013
By Tom LaVille , Times-Republican

The 2007 film "Hairspray" will be shown this week at the Orpheum. Actually, three versions of "Hairspray" have been made. The original film (1988) was co-written and directed by cult film maker John Waters. Waters' reputation and quirky style of filmmaking was perfect for the delightful "message film" presented in "Hairspray." This film was followed by a Broadway version of the musical in 2002, which was written and directed by a whole new team. The most recent version was made in 2007 with John Waters as one of several screenwriters.
