`Hairspray' holds up time after time

Theater review

October 18, 2007|By Mary Carole McCauley | Mary Carole McCauley,Sun theater critic

Hairspray, you're timeless to me.

I've seen six renditions of the Tony Award-winning musical -- twice on Broadway, twice last summer in a movie theater and twice during national tours -- and each time, I'm more beguiled than the last.

If You Go Hairspray continues through Sunday at the Hippodrome Theatre at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center, 12 N. Eutaw St. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Wednesday-Friday; 2 p.m., 8 p.m. Saturday; and 1 p.m., 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets $26-$71. Call 410-547-7328 or go to france-merrickpac.org.
