Hairspray Day

The Lee girls were waaaaayyy overdue for some quality sister time together. So, when Hale Theater added a couple extra matinee shows for Hairspray, we made a plan and jumped into action.

This show was so much fun. I already knew that I loved the movie version, and Hale (as usual) didn't disappoint me with their rendition of this amazing musical. It was killer. The only thing that was a little sad for me was that the poor lead (Tracy Turnblad) gal's voice was almost gone. It was obvious that she had been putting her all into the show for weeks and there just wasn't much voice left. She was so talented--but just had a hard time belting it out. However, everyone else was amazing and more than made up for it. I think my very favorite part was Motormouth Maybelle's "I know where I've been". It seriously brought me to tears, it was so beautifully and powerfully sung. Oh, and I seem to have developed a crush on this version of Seaweed also.

It was so great being out with my sisters... without chasing after kiddos. I love my sisters and it's nice to just focus on each other sometimes.

Not the best picture... but you get the idea. :)
