Hairspray uses state of the art technology that has never been seen before.

Scenery is shown on giant video screens that dominate the stage. Here is what the screens look like when they are blank:

 

And here they are showing various scenes:

The interior of Mr Pinky’s Hefty Hideaway

 

The gymnasium, where Tracy and her friends from detention are persecuted

 

Thursday’s preview also featured the second half of the fabulous production number Welcome to the 60s, where Tracy and Edna are transformed in a homage to Sweet Charity-like 1960s

 

The Dynamites at Mr Pinky’s

 

The magic begins

 

 

Tracy and Edna are transformed

 

Tracy and Edna are part of a black and white mod world

 

Edna is having a ball

 

Tracy knew her Mom would would love it

 

Edna can’t contain her joy

 

The Dynamites finish off the number
