News   PHOTO CALL: Broadway Bears Preview: Harvey Firestein in Hairspray This bear commemorates Harvey Firestein’s performance as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray. Edna Turnbear welcomes you to the 60's with her silk hand-painted dress which is a reduced-scale reproduction of the original fabric. Also remaining true to the inspiration, this bear is indeed wearing a flesh-toned bodysuit. She was designed by David Kaley. The original costume was designed by William Ivey Long. Signed by Harvey Firestein and William Ivey Long, this teddy is the cutest chickee that you ever did see!
