Everyone's first question to me is always, "Don't you ever get tired of doing HAIRSPRAY?"
My answer is always no.
I am always so humbled and grateful to do one of my absolutely favorite shows. They say fourth time's a charm, right? Well that's not the saying, but whatever. The point is, HAIRSPRAY is a story that needs to be told again and again. More than anything, HAIRSPRAY is a story about love. A friend of mine used to say, when coaching my monologues, "Carlita, remember to find the love." Every single time I hear the first few chords of 'Good Morning Baltimore', I'm reminded to find the love in this amazing show.
Also, we get to have amazingly fun moments like this. Check out this backstage freestyle. It's worth the watch!
David Davis on the mic, Allie Jae on the beat. Nailing it.
Okay, let's take a quick trip down memory lane:
HAIRSPRAY at La Comedia, 2011
LITTLE INEZ (Yep, it was a split track. A crazy fast, fun split track.)
HAIRSPRAY at NC Theatre, 2011
LORRAINE/ LITTLE INEZ U/S
HAIRSPRAY at Tuacahn Ampitheatre, 2013
HAIRSPRAY at Paramount Theatre, 2016
Doing HAIRSPRAY at the incredibly gorgeous Paramount Theatre has been a dream come true. Stay tuned for more photos, videos and pics! Seeing people laugh, cry and dance with us reminds me why I wake up at the crack of dawn for auditions.
