THE WASHINGTON POST

You could say Marc Shaiman bloomed late: Despite a lifelong ambition to make it as a Broadway composer, he was 42 when his musical version of “Hairspray” finally made him a big Tony-winning deal on the Great White Way. And unless you’re a theater die-hard, you could be forgiven for thinking that Shaiman came from out of nowhere, or at least from Somewhere Else, when “Hairspray” became the smash hit of the 2002-03 season.
