Nonetheless, not even the supposed ghosts that haunt the venue can dampen the high spirits of this fun, bubbly show. By the time HAIRSPRAY reaches the apex of its final song, literally erupting into a full, on-stage party—complete with confetti cannon—you really will wish the show... "can't stop the beat." It's a guaranteed feel-good time.
