The planets have aligned
According to this article, Zac Efron has been chosen to play the male lead in the movie version of Hairspray. The Broadway cast CD of Hairspray has been in heavy rotation in my house for months, so the kids will be excited when they find out it is being made into a movie. Not only that, but Zac Efron played the male lead in one of their favorite movies, High School Musical. I've also read that Queen Latifah will be playing the role of Motormouth Maybelle. That is perfect casting in my mind, so this movie will be a treat for all of us. Perhaps I can talk ABM into taking us to the theatre rather than waiting to see it on DVD.
