About Hairspray

These are extraordinary times, so I'm sure you understand that in line with the current suspension of performances across the West End, we’re not able to begin performances on 1 September as planned.


But don't worry - you can't stop the beat!


Don’t miss Michael Ball reprising his Olivier Award-winning role as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray at The London Coliseum now from Thursday 22 April 2021.


If you have already booked a ticket via the London Coliseum Box Office they will be in touch with you about rescheduling your tickets to a performance of your choice during the new performance dates: Thursday 22 April – Saturday 28 August 2021. Existing bookers have priority until Sunday 26 July to move their tickets to a new performance.
