Bringing ‘Hairspray’ To The Stage

The musical “Hairspray” follows Tracy Turnblad, a Baltimore teen who dreams of dancing on a 1960s TV show. “Hairspray” is being produced by the Dallas Theater Center, and we talk with director Joel Ferrell and Michelle Dowdy – who plays Tracy – about the social themes the show explores that still resonate today. “Hairspray” is onstage at the Winspear Opera House through July 15.
