Hairspray by Diana Landau( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Audiences have fallen in love with Hairspray and its heroine, Tracy Turnblad--a girl with big hair, big dreams and an even bigger heart--since John Waters created this original, subversively hilarious film in 1988. Next the hit Broadway musical won countless more fans and an armful of Tonys in 2003. Now Hairspray returns to the screen as an innovative movie musical from New Line Cinema, the producers of Chicago, and director-choreographer Adam Shankman. This lavish companion book celebrates the singular phenomenon that is Hairspray, and the supremely talented cast and crew who brought this new incarnation to life. Features about the cast, locations, sets, and costumes give readers an intimate look behind the scenes. Here are profiles of Hairspray's extraordinary actors, all of whom do their own singing and dancing in the film. John Travolta stars in a career-bending twist as Edna Turnblad, the role created by the late Divine. The dream cast also includes Queen Latifah (Motormouth Maybelle), Michelle Pfeiffer (Velma Von Tussle), and Christopher Walken (Wilbur Turnblad) as well as rising young stars led by new talent Nikki Blonsky as Tracy. Hairspray captures the spirit of a time when everything was changing, in music and in society. This special volume captures the essence of the film's creative achievement with more than 200 vivid production photographs and first-person contributions by Waters, director Shankman (Bringing Down the House), and producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. From casting and scripting to rehearsing, shooting scenes and recording the music--it's all explored and depicted in a unique collector's edition
