HAIRSPRAY, The Broadway Musical
Based on the New Line Cinema Film written and directed by John Waters
The world of the '50's is changing, television is going from black and white to color, and Baltimore dance fanatic, plus-sized teen Tracy Turnblad wins a place on a local TV dance show and becomes one of the “Nicest Kids in Town”. Her exuberance bubbles over, but when she learns that she’s not the only one who “some people” want to keep away from the cameras, she sets out to turn Civil Wrongs into Civil Rights, so that everybody at the party can dance together on screen.
HAIRSRPAY, The Broadway Musical is John Waters’ cult film turned into the hit Broadway musical comedy of the new millennium. The winner of 8 Tony awards, 9 Drama Desk Awards, and 4 Olivier Awards, this show introduced some of the most popular Broadway tunes of the last twenty years, including: "Good Morning Baltimore", "I Can Hear the Bells", "(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs", "Welcome to the 60’s", "Big, Blonde, and Beautiful", "(You’re) Timeless to Me", "Without Love", “You Can’t Stop the Beat!”

This Friday marks the last KOXY event of the year-- a dope-ass booty-shakin' dance party DJ'd by, wait for it - Occidental Students Tyler Ollanik, The Underground Sound, 420 Dank Crew, and more!
So come down and dance with your girlfriends 'til you can't dance no more. It's only gonna go 'til midnight, so you can get cooler pizza afterwards. Trust us, you won't wanna miss this one.
Peace love and swag
