Tracy Turnblad is a woman on a mission. Her dream is to dance on The Corny Collins Show
, and she finally makes it. Even after she becomes an overnight star thanks to her original dance moves, Tracy still isn't satisfied. Baltimore in the 1960s has yet to integrate, and the No. 1 teen dance show is no exception. So Tracy sets out to drag Corny, the nasty Tussle family and all of Baltimore into the future by any means necessary. The John Waters musical Hairspray
returns to the Muny for a full week of shows with Ryann Redmond as the lovely Tracy Turnblad. Performances take place at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday through Tuesday (June 23 through 30) at the Muny in Forest Park (314-361-1900 or www.muny.org
). Tickets are $14 to $87.
