"Hairspray" Playing at the Jorgensen in Storrs
In the Broadway hit Hairspray, Edna Turnblad (well-known actor and stand-up comedian Kevin Meaney, left) and Motormouth Maybelle (Tina Fabrique, right) try to steer Edna's daughter, Tracy, in the right directions, as she follows her dreams of early-'60s teen idol-hood, after winning a spot on a "The Corny Collins Show," a local television dance program. Hairspray won eight Tony Awards during its lengthy Broadway run, including Best Musical.
