Music Break [...with the Cast of Hairspray]

Hairspray is far from being among my favourite musicals on stage or on screen but it's difficult to deny the infectiousness of it all. It's one of those hundreds of films that make you think WTF when it comes to Oscars. Sure, it may not have been headed to any major categories but it didn't garner nods for costume design and art direction is beyond me.

This version is by the Original Broadway Cast. Notice Matthew Morrison (aka Mr. Schue) and his injudiciously curled hair. Sue's hair jokes are apt...

And the film incarnation...

I think the stage version trumps the film cast, but they're both quite good.

You're so right, art direction and costume nods were so deserved! Thanks for the video, I had no idea that Matthew Morrison was in the original cast...love the movie, as you know. :)
