The 20th anniversary of the original Broadway musical “Hairspray” is here! Reunited for the first time ever are the original Tracy, Penny and Amber—Marissa Jaret Winokur, Kerry Butler and Laura Bell Bundy. Spend the evening revisiting the show that helped launch their careers and lifetime friendship, all while they sing hits from the shows that made you fall in love with them. With 16 Broadway shows and over 200 episodes of television between them, this trio has truly done it all—from “Beetlejuice” to “Big Brother,” “Mean Girls” to “Legally Blonde” (original Elle Woods), “Dancing with the Stars” to “Beauty and the Beast,” “Wicked” to “Gypsy,” and even the Country Music Awards!

Join these powerhouse performers on a hilarious and meaningful musical journey about their origins, friendships, careers and personal lives. For decades, they performed as teenagers on stage, now see the fully bloomed divas they’ve become in “Mama, I’m a Big Girl Now,” a night of Broadway music and stories you will never forget.
