The original Broadway cast of Hairspray hit the red carpet together at the 2020 Tony Awards!

Marissa Jaret Winokur and Matthew Morrison reunited to open the show on Sunday (September 26) at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York City.

They were joined by former co-stars Kerry Butler, Chester Gregory, and Darlene Love to kick off the night with a performance of “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”

Back in 2003, Hairspray won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Actress for Marissa. The musical ran until 2009 and was turned into a successful feature film. NBC even did a live production a few years ago!

Paramount+ will stream the two-hour Tony Awards ceremony starting at 7pm ET and CBS will then air a two-hour primetime special, The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!, starting at 9pm ET. The primetime special will include performances from beloved classics and the three Best Musical nominees.
