With narration from its creator, performers singing all the major parts and a score presented by the BSO, this "semi-staged" concert production promises to be a "Hairspray" experience for the ages. The beat will most certainly be unstoppable, no matter which performance you choose: Jan. 24 at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda or Jan. 25-27 at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
