With big girls, big hair, and even bigger laughs, London's Shaftesbury Theater welcomes Hairspray, a splashy new musical based on the 1988 John Waters film that starred Divine and a then-unknown Ricki Lake.
It's 1962 and pleasantly plump Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad has only one dream: to dance on the popular Corny Collins Show. When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star, but she must use her newfound power to vanquish the reigning teen queen, win the affections of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a TV network, all without denting her 'do!
Make the most of this memorable performance and enjoy a pre-theatre dinner at Christopher's, an American style restaurant with contemporary cuisine inspired by the grand steak and lobster houses of east coast America. Christopher's has become one of the most well-established and best known restaurants in Covent Garden; it is situated in a Grade II listed, white bricked Victorian building of extremely attractive appearance, with superb and commanding views over Waterloo Bridge.
