Maybe with a little bit delay, Douglas Mayo posted his review about Hairspray Live! soundtrack, praising the cast’s performances and how everyone suited perfectly to their roles. Douglas gives the recording 5 stars!
Below you can read some excerpts of it, including what he says about Derek.
“This recording seems to have been made independently of the live broadcast and features a cast so perfectly suited to this show that it is now my favourite recording of Hairspray, topping even the Original Broadway Cast recording which I have loved for many years. […]
[…] The inclusion of Ladies Choice in this version of the show and The Nicest Kids In Town, complete with blaring brass and driving drums gives Derek Hough a chance to really let rip as TV host Corny Collins.”
Be sure to read it all at British Theatre. It’s a must! 😉
