Hairspray can only be described as a big HUGE bubble of joy that pops off of the stage and into your lap. It is so fun, bright, colorful, and exciting that I can't help but giggle with delight when I think about it. To answer the previous poster's question, this is the complete libretto; that means it has the book (script) and song lyrics. It also includes cute and colorful pictures of the Original Broadway Cast.

Hairspray is love. If you love Hairspray, you'll love to own and re-enact it every day with your very own script. If you haven't seen Hairspray (you poor thing!) you can read the script and enjoy it just as much as I do! It's super duper funny, hip, and has a lot of heart.

I also highly recommend the OBC recording. Not as good unless you've seen it live with all it's super high-energy goodness, but amazing none-the-less!

The musical stage script of Hairspray is even funnier that the film. It has such a witty , and humorous approach to a really valuable discussion. I am looking forward to producing it when it becomes available for High Schools!

OMG! I'm so excited. How did I miss this? I'm a huge fan of Hairspray (proud to say that I saw the musical 3 times to my sister's chagrin) and was devastated when they bowed out of Broadway. As much as I liked the movie versions, they weren't just the same. I always wished that they filmed the musical and put it on DVD. However, this book is a close second best. The book has the lyrics and script for the musical ONLY. It is set up in play format. There are no arrangements for the music or anything else. You have to get a separate book for that - Hairspray: Piano/Vocal Selections. In the center, there are 2 pages of images of the OBC. The quality of the book and pages are pretty sturdy. The font is a decent, readable size.

For fans of the musical, this is a must have. It's like owning a piece of my favorite show in paper format. And I will be definitely pretending to act this out on a rainy day.

This show is so awesome!!! It is super funny, but yet is also deals with difficult issues like racism and and the idea of beauty. You should see the movie, buy the script, get the soundtrack and make a date night of seeing this show done live! If you don't, then you are missing out on a fabulous piece!!!!!

Wonderful resource for audition prep or if you're a fan of musical theatre! It's good to see what the actors read and the context around the songs if the soundtrack is all you have.
