Synopsis: Two love-struck dreamers fall in love during the height of the hair-metal scene as they navigate the seedy world of drugs, mullets, and stripping while at a club on the Sunset Strip in this adaptation of the hit off-Broadway musical. Chris D’Arienzo adapts his own stage book, with Hairspray‘s Adam Shankman handling direction and choreography duties for the New Line production. Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, and Dancing With the Stars winner Julianne Hough head up the cast alongside Diego Boneta, who portrays the lead character, Drew Boley
Drew is an aspiring rocker, a talented singer/guitarist who’s already working with a band. Immediately smitten by the lovely and naive, yet talented Sherrie, he’s currently working behind the scenes at the legendary Bourbon Room, stoked when he finally gets a chance to open for a major star. Later, a mortified Drew is signed by a manager who insists on turning him into the next homogenized teeny bopper.
Sherrie is an aspiring musician also that comes to LA to follow her dream and ends up falling for Drew.
