thoughts on Hairspray Live!
1. ummmmm… Maddie is adorable, however, a bit underwhelming for me. every other tracy i’ve seen has had so much more energy than her..
2. I missed Mama I’m a Big Girl Now in the movie. I missed New girl in Town in the musical.
3. AMERICA HAS BEEN SLEEPING ON DOVE CAMERON. She is the true MVP of this production
4. wow! what an honor to see Harvey Feirstein play Edna once again.
5. why is Ariana playing Penny like Kat??? it’s so annoying… penny is not dumb, she’s sheltered. big difference. also.. she walked on her tip toes the whole time. lol. at least she sounded fantastic.
6. Jennifer, Kristin, and Derek were absolute pros as usual. i never had any doubt in them.
7. the second half was 5x better than the first act, and y’all know it’s because of Ephraim and Jennifer.
8. the rest of the cast was wonderful. garrett, ephraim, the little girl who played Inez (i forgot!), and martin short. good job guys!
9. the choreography was a bit underwhelming most of the time. but i like that they stuck with the og choreography for You Can’t Stop the Beat.
