“Hairspray” Cast On “Today” Show – Watch Interview! (VIDEO)
The cast of “Hairspray Live!” discussed the upcoming NBC musical event in an interview broadcast on Monday’s “Today” show. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, next month NBC is staging a one-time-only TV production of the beloved show. This is now the fourth year in a row the network is broadcasting a musical, following The Sound Of Music, Peter Pan and The Wiz. And once again, a number of celebrities have signed up to participate.
Ariana Grande says in the new “Today” interview, “The costumes are amazing, everyone sounds amazing, everyone’s funny, everyone’s happy. It’s too much.” Adds Jennifer Hudson, “Everyone’s excited. It’s inspiring. We bounce off each other.”
With so many stars involved, Derek Hough comments, “They kept naming the cast, and I was like, ‘What?! Oh, wow, great, that’s amazing.’ And then, ‘Wait [another]?!'” The “Dancing with the Stars” pro goes on to note, “What makes it so special is that it is live. So I think any imperfections that the audience might see, [they’ll] actually enjoy.”
And with the story’s moving message about equality, Grande even says, “We have been moved to tears literally every single time [we rehearse]. And it’s gonna be so hard not to cry on the day.” Fans already got a sneak peek when a Hairspray performance was featured in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade last week. Gossip Cop will have full coverage of “Hairspray Live!” when it takes place on December 7. Check out the “Today” video below!
