Hairspray, Sept. 9-21, Mechanic. Adapted from John Waters' 1988 movie, the musical focuses on a rotund, socially conscious Bawlamer teen named Tracy Turnblad, who wins a coveted spot on a local 1960s TV dance show. "I can't wait for Baltimoreans to experience this celebration of their city. How fitting it is to bring it all home," said the musical's Baltimore-born producer, Margo Lion, who will be honored by Mayor Martin O'Malley today. Bruce Vilanch is expected to star as Tracy's mom.
