The Tony Award winner for best musical, Hairspray is the feel-good Broadway blockbuster based on the 1988 John Waters movie of the same title. The music is by Marc Shaiman (who wrote the clever score to the musical film South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut), with lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. The story is set in Baltimore, 1962, and the songs are a snappy, affectionate homage to the rock and pop of the period. This folio features easy piano arrangements of 12 songs: Good Morning Baltimore • The Nicest Kids in Town • Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now • I Can Hear the Bells • It Takes Two • Welcome to the '60s • Run and Tell That! • Big, Blonde and Beautiful • Timeless to Me • Without Love • I Know Where I've Been • You Can't Stop the Beat.
