Haylie Duff in Hairspray
Haylie Duff (pictured with the bouffant wig) started her run on Broadway last night in Hairspray as the snotty Amber Von Tussle. Aaron Tveit also started performances yesterday as the fellow nicest kid in town Link Larkin. Haylie, 21, sister Hilary, and the rest of the Hairspray cast celebrated the night away at The Palm West restaurant. The Palm’s GM Chris Gilman said, "Haylie was delightful … and a most welcomed addition to our Broadway community." More pictures in the gallery!
UPDATE :: I had the whole "Haylie Duff Experience" last night. I ate at The Palm West restaurant (Audrey and I shared the 5 lb. lobster and it was AMAZING) and got to see Hairspray again. Amazing as usual. I listen to the soundtrack all the time, so I sang along this time. And if I was allowed to stand in the aisles, I would have danced all of the choreography too. Haylie did a medicore job filling the role of Amber… the dancing definitely needed a lot more work. On a side note, I really missed Diana DeGarmo in the role of Penny Pingleton… Caissie Levy didn’t seem as gawky to me. Anyway, buy your tickets now or wait until Diana returns on September 8th.
