As Hairspray prepares to return to London’s West End from 23 April 2020, the full cast has now been revealed.
Michael Ball will return to his legendary Olivier Award winning role of Edna Turnblad, with relative newcomer Lizzie Bea taking on the role of Tracy Turnblad.
They’ll be joined by comedian Paul Merton, who will make his West End musical debut in the show. Merton is best known as a long-standing panellist on the BBC’s Have I Got News For You, and appears on the Comedy Store stage in London most Sundays. Alongside a string of TV hosting duties and guest appearances, Merton is also currently gearing up for the release of his first Channel 4 series, Paul Merton The Series.
Ball won the coveted Olivier Award for his turn as Edna Turnblad when the musical last appeared on the West End stage, with stage credits including Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera, and Chess. Ball has recently teamed up with fellow West End veteran Alfie Boe for a series of collaborative albums, releasing Back Together in 2019.
Lizzie Bea’s stage credits include the UK tour of Kinky Boots as well as performing stateside in the world premiere production of Becoming Nancy at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre.
Baltimore, 1962. Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and big dreams. Can she make it on the local TV dance show, win the heart of Link Larkin and bring everyone together – whatever their colour, size or hairdo?
From the original award-winning creative team of director Jack O’Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, get ready for feel-good songs and dazzling dance numbers.
It’s the show that gives maximum lift…but for 12 weeks only. Don’t miss out – book now!
