The 2016 production of HAIRSPRAY (featuring Arian Grande and Jennifer Hudson) will be made available to UK audiences for free for 48 hours via Universal’s THE SHOWS MUST GO ON YouTube channel.
Last week, Universal confirmed that beloved musical productions would continue to run via the channel, with The Sound of Music streaming last weekend following the initial Andrew Lloyd Webber series of shows. To date, millions of musical theatre fans around the globe have tuned in and donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to charity, whilst watching and singing-a-long at home.
HAIRSPRAY will launch this Friday at 7.00pm and be available to UK audiences for 48 hours. The show features an all-star cast that includes Maddie Baillio, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Martin Short and Billy Eichner.
