Tonight, Paul C. Vogt will play the role of Mr. Harriman F. Spritzer on NBC's production of Hairspray Live
. Vogt is no stranger to the play-- in January 2007, he took over the role of Edna Turnblad in the Broadway production that had previously been played by Harvey Fierstein. Vogt also played the role in the Las Vegas production of Hairspray
, as well as the regional theater premiere at the North Shore Music Theater in fall 2006. Tonight, however, Fierstein will be playing the role of Edna Turnblad, and Vogt will be taking on Mr. Harriman F. Spritzer, the president of Ultra Clutch cosmetics and Corny Collins' show sponsor. Vogt will be joined by many accomplished actors for the production, including Jennifer Hudson, Derek Hough, Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Ariana Grande, Dark Cameron, Kristin Chenoweth, and Garrett Clayton. The adaptation was co-directed by Kenny Leon and Alex Rudzinski, and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell. Harvey Fierstein (who is reprising his role as Edna Turnblad) is the script adapter.
