Michael Ball to return to Hairspray in the West End

Friday, 3rd May 2019  


It has been announced that Hairspray will be performed at the London Coliseum next year, with Michael Ball set to reprise his role as Edna Turnblad.

The actor won an Olivier Award for his performance in the 2007 production at the Shaftesbury Theatre, opposite Leanne Jones as Tracy Turnblad who also won an Olivier for the production.

Hairspray follows Tracy Turnblad as she earns a place on The Corny Collins Show, with her progressive views on racial integration making her stand out and earning the attention of teenage heartthrob Link Larkin.

The musical features a soundtrack by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, including “You Can’t Stop the Beat”, “Good Morning Baltimore” and “I Can Hear the Bells”.

Hairspray is at the London Coliseum from 23rd April 2020, with Hairspray tickets available now.
