  Filmmaker John Waters grew up in Baltimore in the 1950s and began making silent 8mm and 16mm films in the mid 1960s, screened in rented church halls and attended by underground audiences who heard of the films by word-of-mouth and leaflets. His first success: the 1972 film Pink Flamingos starring Divine.

Hairspray opened Tuesday, March 29 at the Music Hall and runs through April 10, 2005.
