John Waters' kitschy 1988 film about a slightly overweight youngster, Tracy Turnblad, hoping to become a featured dancer on a television American Bandstand-type show, became a big, sparkling musical when film composer Marc Shaiman teamed with Scott Wittman (lyrics), Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan (book) to write Hairspray, a multiple Tony® winner which opened on August 15, 2002 at the Neil Simon Theatre for a run of 2,641 performances. Set in Baltimore in the early 1960s, the musical remained close to the storyline developed in the film, but added a few original touches of its own, including a series of songs that rocked with clever abandon and delighted audiences, who rooted all the way for Marissa Jaret Winokur, as Tracy. Gravel-voiced Harvey Fierstein, in a multicolored dress, played Tracy's mother (the role played in the film by Divine), with diminutive Dick Latessa sharing the stage and spotlight in a tender duet, "You're Timeless to Me," which harkened back to the days of vaudeville.
