This weekend, I headed across the country to spend some time with Shop Friend, who I don’t see often enough. We hunkered down with cake and chocolate, and proceeded to revisit Hairspray, which we saw for the first time by accident when we had meant to go and see something else.
I had forgotten just how fantastic Hairspray is. It’s a heart-warming story which just about walks the line between too cheesy and just freaking great. The songs are catchy, the characters are wonderful and it’s definitely one to be watched, preferably on a ladies’ weekend in with the accompaniment of chocolate and singing along.
Watch it. Go on… you know you want to.
