Leanne Jones, 'in an astonishingly accomplished stage debut' (Evening Standard) has won the 2008 Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical in the role of Tracy. 'Musical star' (Sunday Times) Ben James-Ellis, who first shot to fame on the reality TV show Any Dream Will Do, plays heart-throb Link Larkin.
Leanne Jones and Ben James-Ellis are contracted to appear in Hairspray until the 25th July 2009.
'Big Hair, Big Heart, Big Hit! You will laugh, you will scream, you might even shed a tear or two' Daily Telegraph.
