A lot less jazz on the Great White Way What's been more successful on Broadway in recent years than "Hairspray," starring Harvey Fierstein and composed and written by life and work partners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman? Than "Avenue Q," a puppet musical in which the sweetest relationship is between messy, jobless Nicky and his roommate and closeted Republican investment banker Rod? Than "The Producers," Mel Brooks' "Keep It Gay" song-and-dance megahit? Not a whole lot.
