It's time to tease your hair and take a trip to Baltimore circa 1962. The Flat Rock Playhouse is currently showing Hairspray, a do-wop sugary-sweet musical that focuses on teen angst and sock hops with a dash of social commentary thrown in for good measure. The show was dubbed "Broadway's big fat musical hit" and with such infectious songs as Good Morning Baltimore and You Can't Stop the Beat it's hard not to thoroughly enjoy yourself.
The Flat Rock Playhouse is the state theatre of North Carolina and one thing's for sure - any show you see there is going to be a good one. This production of Hairspray is no different. The cast is spot on, the set and lighting are both meticulous and with a winning musical score it makes for the perfect date night trifecta.
The show is running now through August 14. Find tickets here.
