ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the after-party of the motion picture "Hairspray," at the Roseland Ballroom in New York. At the party, there was a full-size reproduction of lead actor James Marden's character variety show set, decked out with a vast dance floor and giant tubes of Ultra Clutch hairspray that stood at least 15 feet high. R&B and Motown hits of the show's 1960s setting played at high volume, while waiters offer a combination of haute cuisine and soul food to other actors and actresses.
