Lance Bass Joins Broadway Cast Of 'Hairspray' On Aug. 14
The long-running musical, which opened Aug. 15, 2002, at the Neil Simon Theatre, is based on John Waters' cult film set in 1960s Baltimore. It currently stars Shannon Durig as Tracy Turnblad, a pudgy dance-obsessed teen, and Paul C. Vogt as her equally full-figured mother, Edna.
Also in the current cast is Jerry Mathers, best known as Beaver Cleaver in the classic sitcom ''Leave It to Beaver.'' Mathers portrays Wilbur Turnblad, Tracy's dad, in the show.
The movie version of the musical, starring John Travolta as Edna, opens later this month.
