How Would Your Hairspray Live! Character Combat Trump?


The popular musical is back again for Hairspray Live! and the issues addressed are all too relevant in today's America.

John Waters's Hairspray addresses racial segregation, self-esteem, and bullying without ever being less than joyful. After a movie, a Broadway musical, a movie version of the musical, and now a live TV version (airing Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern on NBC), the numbers feel as topical as ever.

We asked the cast of Hairspray Live! how their characters would fight back in Donald Trump's America.
