#123 | Make Every Day Negro Day: A “Hairspray Live!” Primer (feat. @itsdonte)

“Good morning, Baltimore!” Join the Say Something Nice Crew, along with our good friend Donte, for a rousing discussion of “Hairspray”, John Waters’ seminal semi-autobiographical film about 1962 Baltimore during the Civil Rights Movement. Our conversation covers the original film, its Broadway musical adaptation and musical film remake, actors and of course, the ‘60s inspired music. We also debate whether NBC’s upcoming live version, premiering December 7 and starring Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Martin Short, and Harvey Fierstein, will live up to the legacy of previous productions.
