"I Wish Every Day Was Negro Day!"

I saw Hairspray last night with Rosalie. It was everything a musical movie should be - fun, bright, full of great songs and dancing scenes.

The movie is set in the '60s, when the racial segregation issue was lurking behind the optimistic bright shininess of society. What I love about the movie is that on the surface, it's very plastic, bright, superficial, but with a real issue underneath that is the real focus of it all.

The musical also celebrates difference between people. The actors all had amazing voices, the choreography was great, some awesome cheesy lines.

I can't wait to see it again ... and again ... and again ...

(Cue jazz hands here!)
