There is only one good Edna on Broadway - JOHN PINETTE! HE WAS THE BEST EVER! And Travolta was the ugliest and scariest of them all! just because he has a name, doesn't mean he can act the part.....this is a precious broadway role and they destroyed Hairspray's integrity by putting travolta in the role and removing so many great songs. HAIRSPRAY ON BROADWAY THE ONLY SHOW TO SEE!

Mrs. Pine    

Divine was spinning in his/her grave when that closet case Revolta put his stain on Edna. Harvey Firestein should have been asked to reprise the role for the movie. But the bigger question is: why was there another "Hairspray" movie in the first place, when the original is such a classic? This recycling chain of movie - play - movie is another example of the lack of creativity in show business (look at how "The Producers" was ruined, and I'm sure "Spamalot" will also be coming to a theater near you!)
