It was just announced that Dove Cameron (Liv and Maddie, Descendants) and Garrett Clayton (Teen Beach Movie franchise) would be starring in a remake of the Broadway musical/movie Hairspray called Hairspray Live! They will star as Amber von Tussle and Link Larkin respectively.
They join a star-studded cast including Ariana Grande as Penny Pingleton, Derek Hough as Corny Collins and Jennifer Hudson. Kristin Chenoweth also stars in this musical as Velma von Tussle, Amber’s mother, so we’ll be seeing Kristin Chenoweth and Dove Cameron pair up as a mother-daughter duo like they did in Descendants.
The musical is set to broadcast on NBC on December 7, 2016. So excited for this!!! Gonna go start brushing up on the musical numbers.
