Ray Quirolgico: Hairspray 
Anne Cahalane: Live HAIRSPRAY would be great fun! Bring in [Jerry] Mitchell to direct the actors and a TV director to even things out with the sets and such… maybe an unknown as Tracy…
Bruce Cutter: HAIRSPRAY or HOW TO SUCCEED (with Danile Radcliffe?) might be good choices. I hope they include Laura and Audra in whatever they decide to produce. If it’s the right show, Hugh Jackman would be a great choice.

Hairspray, based on the 1988 film of the same title, opened at the Neil Simon Theatre in 2002. The musical won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Actor and Best Actress. A film version of the musical, starring John Travolta, Amanda Bynes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Nikki Blonsky and James Marsden was released in 2007.
