John Waters fans probably remember when “Hairspray: In Concert” came to the BSO stage in 2013—and, if you weren’t one of the lucky few who secured tickets, the crushing realization that it had sold out. Good news, Baltimore: The Charm City favorite is back! Come catch the Turnblads, Motormouth Maybelle and the rest of the gang when the semi-staged concert production hits the Strathmore and Meyerhoff this week.
Waters will narrate the show…and then head downstairs at Ryleigh’s Oyster House after the Friday night production for a ticketed VIP party—though that event is (you guessed it) sold out. Ryleigh’s is hosting an open after party on its first floor, however, so feel free to stop by with the hope of seeing Baltimore’s most beautifully bizarre son.
June 2 at Strathmore and June 3-5 at the Meyerhoff.
