The North Carolina Theatre‘s high-octane production of “Hairspray” is a must-see musical, with energy to burn, thanks to kinetic staging by director John Simpkins and choreographer Josh Rhodes, exuberant instrumental accompaniment by musical director Nancy Whelan and the NCT orchestra, and a crackerjack cast that really knows how to shake, rattle, and roll.
The North Carolina Theatre is bringing “Hairspray” heroine Tracy Turnblad, the big girl with the big hair and the even bigger heart played for NCT by Jennifer Foster, back to the Triangle for 10 performances on July 23 and 24th and July 26-31, plus a special Target Student Preview Night, starting at 7 p.m. on July 22nd, all in Raleigh Memorial Auditorium.
“A John Waters Christmas” was the perfect way to get to know a new side of the man behind the lens. Clunky transitions from story to story aside, Waters concocted a delightfully edgy, hilariously outrageous evening of Christmas cheer unrivaled in the Triangle area.
Putting the “X” back in Xmas, filmmaker John Waters’ rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real-life holiday horror stories.
