Hairspray is a story that has seen three incarnations: first, as a 1988 film by John Waters, next as a Broadway musical stage production, and finally, as a 2007 movie musical film.

Set in 1963 Baltimore, the story follows "pleasantly plump" teenager Tracy Turnblad as she simultaneously pursues stardom as a dancer on a local TV show and rallies against racial segregation.
