Audience Reviews for Hipsters
Hairspray in the USSR; i.e., fun and bright, but with stakes. Visual candy, catchy tunes, Lovers in a Dangerous Time plot, and only a touch heavy-handed in its political statement. Wobbles toward the end, but how many musicals don't? Eye-opening work... I kind of loved it.
