HAIRSPRAY- Florida Studio Theatre

Seen as Tracy Turnblad in Florida Studio Theatre's production of Hairspray, Nov. 12th- Jan. 24th, 2015. 

 

"Smiles can be catching. And Brooke Shapiro has an infectious smile that makes you quickly fall for her outsider character Tracy Turnblad...Shapiro also rarely stops moving and her dancing matches that joyous look on her face...Shapiro is the heart of Richard Stafford’s colorful production.- Jay Handelman, Sarasota Herald-Tribune

 

"Brooke Shapiro dominates the proceedings as Tracy. Although many teenage girls fantasize about playing the role, few can dance, dance, and dance some more for 2-1/2 hours and still be able to belt most of score. Ms. Shapiro does all this and more. I have seen at least one Tracy in a professional production who was nowhere near as good as this." -  William S. Oser, talkinbroadway.com
