This weekend in the Triangle, there are events related to both “Hairspray” and “Grease.” What to do, then, with the kids? Little kids will likely enjoy the bounce and pep of the music, though big kids will require a little more context. Maybe the best thing to do with the latter is explain the grown-up penchant for nostalgia – though be sure to say the ’50s and ’60s weren’t necessarily the good old days for lots of Americans.
