Yesterday, the first press conference of “Hairspray Live!” was held with the executive producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, answering some questions and revealing interesting things about the live broadcast.
They also said that an official website will be up soon and we can’t wait for it! Be sure to check Broadway World for more details such as the music, cameo appearances and more.
Discussing the role of the live audience (which was announced back in April), Meron explained, “It’s going to be functioning in two ways… Naturally, story-wise, there is an audience for “The Corny Collins Show”, so we will have that as kind of a natural extension to the story of Hairspray Live! Plus, in another location, we will have just a general audience that will be there to watch, observe, react and hopefully have a really good time.”
P.S. Don’t forget that until tomorrow, you can submit for the new auditions for Hairspray Live! in LA. If you are interested, click here for more info.
