Reviews from DC

Faith performed as Tracy on the tour's opening night in DC, and here's what critics had to say from DC Metro Arts and BroadwayWorld!
"Seeing her it was hard to imagine how much better the original lead, Niki Metcalf, could possibly be. From Northcutt’s initial appearance getting out of bed and singing “Good Morning Baltimore,” she draws you in with her vocal clarity and melodic playfulness (much like you would expect of a 16-year-old). In the script, Tracy’s physicality brings her scorn and criticism from her peers, showing how senseless and cruel body shaming can be. But the vulnerability Northcutt conveys really underlies her true strength of character. Brava!"
- Michael Sainte-Andress, DC Metro Arts
"Faith Northcutt as Tracy Turnblad gives an endearing performance. Northcutt is actually an understudy for the role and also serves as the show's dance captain. Her performance features both strong acting and singing. From the minute she opens her mouth in "Good Morning Baltimore" her first "OH OH OH" had me hooked."

Faith made her National Tour Principal Debut as Tracy Turnblad on the Hairspray National Tour! Here's a snippet of the Broadway World article from that night.
"Audiences on January 19th had the pleasure of seeing Faith Northcutt's understudy debut as Tracy, and you could see the exuberance on her face as she sang and tap danced her way through the show. From the moment the curtain went up on the song "Good Morning Baltimore," Northcutt immediately sold the audiences on her rendition of Tracy. Youthful, determined, and excited, Northcutt was Tracy on that evening. Regardless of whether you see Northcutt or the principle Tracy actress, Niki Metcalf, you'll be able to witness for yourself an up and coming actress thrive in a role they were destined to play."
