New Hairspray Clip — Do the Travolta Shimmy

Calling all fans of musicals — this musical number clip from Hairspray is for you. It's campy, slightly ridiculous and highly energetic. Plus, it features John Travolta wriggling his (her?) body into flashy new clothes and letting loose. I'm a bit of a curmudgeon and even I was temporarily softened by this little number. To watch the clip,

The play is absloutely amazing...although I must say it'll take a little while for me to warm up to Travolta as Mrs. Turnblad -- his voice is almost too clear.

I saw Travolta on a news show the other day and he said test audiences didn't know it was a man playing his part. How could you NOT tell that is him? I mean, he's Danny Zuko. Everyone knows what he looks like - even with a fat suit.

I haven't seen the musical on stage but I've listened to the cast recording several times, and I'm so excited about seeing this movie -- but I'm also weirded out by John Travolta dressed as a woman!

I have to say, I'm totally terrified of John Travolta in drag. I don't really know why either lol.

I am a HUGE fan of the John Waters film so, although I heard the musical was amazing on Broadway, I never went up to see it and I'm a bit nervous about this movie. But I must admit, this was really cute. The exterior shot of the store looked a lot like it did in the Waters version, and YAY for Jerry Stiller being in this version, too, although I don't think he's playing Tracy's dad again. I've gotta say, my admiration increases for anyone who's willing to poke fun of themself and to be ridiculous, and I think it's awesome that Travolta is doing this. I doubt his more infamous Scientology pal would ever dress as a fat woman.
