Baltimore, 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism,
and Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker is the coolest boy
in town. He's a bad boy with a good cause—truth,
justice and the pursuit of rock 'n' roll—and when
he falls for Allison Vernon-Williams, a good girl who
wants to be bad, her charm school world of bobby sox and
barbershop quartets will never be the same. Wayward youth,
juvenile delinquents, sexual repression, cool music, dirty
lyrics, bizarre rejects...finally, the '50s come to life
onstage in the new musical Cry-Baby.
on John Waters' 1990 film starring Johnny Depp, Cry-Baby
features a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan (Tony
winners for the Broadway production of Waters' Hairspray)
and a score by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger, the
Oscar- and Grammy-nominated songwriter of the rock band
Fountains of Wayne. A young and talented cast brings Waters'
characters to life in one of the most anticipated Broadway
musicals of the season!
