Hairspray come up in conversation recently, so I decided to pull out the cammed version of the Broadway show. I kicked myself for not catching it while in NYC. I have yet to watch the John Travolta version-without Divine or Harvey, it seems sacrilegious, but I guess they’re still trying to “out” the greaser.
You could tell that the audience was pulled in to the show by Harvey, so I would have thought the natural choice for the movie would be him. Oh, well. I won’t judge it until I am bored enough to watch it.
