Travolta In DragYup, That's John Travolta on the set of the new "Hairspray" Musical.
He ain't Divine, but I saw the musical at the Orpheum in Memphis a couple of years ago and it was fun.

Good god, the man's creepy enough without the drag get-up. What's next, "Johnny Poppins"?
First Tom Cruise apologizes to Brooke Shields while eating breakfast at her house. Now John Travolta in Drag! What's next - Kirstie Alley and Priscilla Presley coming out as a couple before marrying Bigfoot? These Scientologists are turning things upside down.
I lived in the Highlandtown section of Baltimore for many years growing up. Many scenes from John Waters' original movie version were filmed in the neighborhood. I remember a section of Eastern Avenue being blocked off one day as they were filming a scene with Rikki Lake outside Pacey's dress shop. And the premiere at the Senator theatre was one for the ages.
I know people who saw the Broadway show and loved it. Looking forward to the movie myself.
