From Broadway to Billboard

Sat, 01/31/2015 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Show tunes grew distinct from pop songs with the birth of rock ’n’ roll. Over the years a few have managed to leap across genres and land on the Billboard charts. Join host Robert Hammond for this week’s Stage Notes when he’ll showcase Broadway songs that became pop hits. Make sure to follow Stage Notes on Twitter @stagenotes.

About the show

When Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake), an overweight teen, auditions for a spot on a popular teen dance show, she beats out the spiteful Amber von Tussle (Colleen Fitzpatrick), winning over Amber's boyfriend (Michael St. Gerard) in the process. After meeting some black students at her school, Tracy begins to push for more racial integration on the dance show. This gets her into trouble on many sides, especially with Amber's pushy parents (Sonny Bono, Deborah Harry).

Don't miss this special showing of Hairspray!  We'll see you there!
