Earlier in the month, a handful of Hairspray characters from the Pioneer Theatre Guild’s upcoming musical came to my studio to collaborate on some tasty, leaving-me-wanting-more publicity photos. As usual, I was blown away by the talent and energy of the kids, and how perfectly each was suited to his or her part. Of course, I would have loved to have included Edna Turnblad (Tracy’s super-plus-sized mother, played by a male in drag) in the shoot. But that’s a “feast for the eyes” best experienced with 1000+ other theater lovers when he/she first appears on stage — I CAN’T WAIT!

I loved Russel in drag he was hilarious! It Is a true test of man hood to be able to play a convincing girl. More boys should play girls as well as Russel did. All of the other actors and actresses were amazing! All of u deserve to go to new york's performing arts school u r that good! I love going to see how good the new plays r and u guys never disappoint!
