NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"IF life were everything it should be -- that is, if life were more like the endearing new musical called ''Hairspray'' that opened last night at the Neil Simon Theater -- your every waking thought would be footnoted by a chorus of backup singers of early 60's vintage. You know, the kind who always come up with helpful bons mots like ''ow-oot'' and ''bop-be-ba, ba-ba-ba-ba,'' whether the lead singer's heart is breaking or quaking.
