Perfect casting. Link was awffulll.

Although it brought a new and lighter feel to the story, the lead just wasn't the Tracy expected. Matched with the multiple technical errors and so-so cast, Hairspray Live just doesn't live up to its big screen counterpart.

Not a big fan of the casting for this one. One might as well watch the actual movie version.

Having been a big fan of the original movie in 2007 . never seen the play. I was only hoping that the new one would do it justice well having now seen it I can say yes things are changed but I liked most of the changes Tracy was a sweetie pie just like always and the others were great too I really suggest that you watch this

A very great musical for tv. Dove Cameron fits the role of Amber Von Tussle perfectly

The movie was good like any other rendition of Hairspray. The sound quality was not the best, but a live show can have some issues. At times, the rhythm seemed to be off as well. Maybe the monitors could not be heard? A sound check should have fixed this issue.

Good intentioned, but rough "live" attempt at restaging a show that's already been staged in multiple versions (film, stage and then film again). The cast gave high energy performances that were uneven at best and there were several technical issues (including befuddled lighting cues and cameras wandering into view). The cast was often hard to understand during the musical numbers, but the dancing was pretty good. For some reason they kept cutting away to various US cities that were hosting live parties. Overall the whole thing had an amateur feel to it that really seemed to require more rehersal. It was like watching a dress rehersal for a slick high school production. Not one of the better "live" adaptations that have been popping up all over network TV in the last year or so.

Highs and Lows. Mostly Highs.
