★★★★★ The Public Reviews
“The ultimate feel-good show” Guardian
"Hairspray remains a funny, frothy and feelgood musical and the hard working cast make it the perfect show to see on tour, as it has 'West End quality' running through it - like the words in a stick of rock. "Run and Tell That" to everyone you know." ★★★★★ www.whatsonstage.com
"This is popular entertainment at its best from a company that knows how to send its audiences home happy and shouting for more." www.britishtheatreguide.info
"Finishing on a full standing ovation, success for Hairspray at the Lowry is assured, a wonderfully entertaining and hilarious show that will leave you smiling and humming the songs on your way home." 5 out of 5 www.salfordonline.com
"Hairspray captures perfectly the optimism and irrepressible energy of youth, a bright can-do attitude in contrast to their parents’ tired, down-at-heel wisdom. The real revelation in this tour is Mark Benton’s exceptional Edna Turnblad, whose character development over the course of the evening is in turns touching, warm, dignified and funny."

Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes
