I just loved Hairspray - the movie, with John Travolta. It was so funny and it has a powerful message. I am sure that seeing on the stage will be a fabulous experience, the video looks really great. I hope you'll get out there and support the Stanley and have a wonderful experience listening to all the great songs.
I'm sorry to hear that actor Jay Brazeau suffered a small stroke, but if you read below, he's already home and will join the performances later on. Sending you lots of great energy that you feel better soon, and can perform the role you obviously worked so hard for.
