Get ready to feel the beat! The first ‘Hairspray Live’ cast photo of Tracy, Edna, Penny and the rest of the gang has finally arrived. Everyone looks so fabulous!
Raise your hand if you can’t wait for Dec. 7! The first official Hairspray Live! cast photo was released on Oct. 19. Everyone looks so incredible and fierce in the photo. Tracy Turnblad’s hair is sprayed to the max and looks like it has zero chance of moving. Tracy will be played by Maddie Baillio, who is making her TV debut in the role. Harvey Fierstein, 62, who originated the role of Edna Turnblad in the Broadway musical, is returning.
Dove Cameron, 20, and Kristen Chenoweth, 48, slay in bright, fierce pink dresses. These two actresses are playing mother-daughter duo Amber and Velma Von Tussle. Kristen and Dove previously played mother and daughter in Disney Channel’s The Descendants.
But we have to talk about Ariana Grande, 23! The “Dangerous Woman” singer is playing Penny Pingleton in the live musical, and her pigtails are ON POINT! She is head-to-toe what Penny should be!
Garrett Clayton, 25, and Derek Hough, 31, look dreamy as Link Larkin and Corny Collins in the poster. Martin Short, 66, is totally lovable as Wilbur Turnblad. Jennifer Hudson, 35, also looks totally fabulous in the poster, alongside Ephraim Sykes and Shahadi Wright Joseph also star in the live musical, with Billy Eichner, 38, Sean Hayes, 46, Rosie O’Donnell, 54, and Andrea Martin, 69, making appearances as well. We can’t wait to see this cast sing and dance into our hearts!
This is the first live musical since FOX’s Grease: Live in Jan. 2016. It’s about time we were treated to another major live musical event! Hairspray Live! will air Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
