“I'll eat some breakfast, then change the world”

Hairspray

January 12-15, 2017 • Victoria Theatre There is a subtext to Muse productions. Emanating from the stage is an authentic joy paired with a reminder of the remarkable things committed young people achieve together. It spills across the theatre leaving the audience contagiously joyous and hopeful. In Hairspray, that “Muse effect” alongside the most beautifully diverse cast of any Muse show to date and unimaginable timing (following a tumultuous Presidential election process), gave us a show that was more sharply comedic, more poignant and smarter than anyone could have predicted. With a collection of students on stage, backstage and in the orchestra pit that more closely resembled the diverse community around us, the message of celebrating one another, different as everyone may be, was shared through song, dance and humor as well as through the behaviors they modeled in real life. More than most, the stars seemed to align for this show.
