Last Chances to see the Mega Hit "Hairspray" before it closes Jan. 4, 2009; Harvey Fierstein Returns Nov. 11th

"Hairspray" has had one heck of a run -- more than 2,600 performances -- by the time it closes January 4 at the Neil Simon Theatre. But the show, based on John Waters' cult movie classic, is going out with a bang and its original star, Harvey Fierstein.
The actor will return to the musical, which opened in August 2002, for its last eight weeks, November 11-January 4. He will reprise his Tony-winning role of Edna Turnblad, the goodhearted mother of Tracy Turnblad, would-be TV teen dance star in 1960s Baltimore.
"Hairspray" has grossed more than $265 million during its Broadway run and was made into a movie musical with John Travolta in the Fierstein role.
There's no decision yet on what will go into the Neil Simon, a desirable 1,400-seat theater that usually houses musicals. But Variety has reported a possible tenant next fall could be the American company of "Dirty Dancing," which just opened in Chicago, Illinois, and will play Boston, Massachusetts, and Los Angeles, California, in 2009.
