Steven Baruch, producer of the current stage version of The Producers, is planning to bring another movie to Broadway, according to New York Post columnist Cindy Adams. Adams reported Tuesday that Baruch is planning to produce a musical version of the John Waters cult classic Hairspray with Harvey Fierstein in the role played by the late Divine. ("No contract signed," Adams wrote, "but Harvey's done all the readings and meetings so far.") Baruch told Adams: "For sure I only know it should be cheaper to produce than The Producers."
