Hairspray is the word


I loved John Waters' film Hairspray from 1988, and was fortunate to be in Seattle when the musical version premiered three years ago, with Harvey Fierstein taking on the "Divine" role of Edna Turnblad. Now John Travolta dons wig and a family-sofa's worth of stuffing for the movie of the musical of the movie. With any luck it will not succumb to the fate of Mel Brooks' The Producers where brilliant movie -> soso musical -> I really don't want to see the movie of the musical.

The photo above from the blog of the movie of the musical of the film. Maybe someone should do a blog about the powder on the nose of the lady of the harem of the Court of King Caractacus.
