John Waters teen drama comes to the Marquis Theatre for previews on March 15, 2008 with an official opening date of April 24, 2008. Cry-Baby is the second Waters film to come to Broadway the first being the highly successful Hairspray. Can lightning strike twice? The production, based on the 1990 film of the same name, is this springs most anticipated musicals. It made its world premiere with much buzz from audiences and critics at the LaJolla Playhouse in 2007. The musical about class brackets and social status in the 1950’s is now headed for the big stage.

The production is set in 1954 Baltimore and focuses on the coolest kid in town, Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker, from the wrong side of the tracks who falls for the goody two shoes, Allison Vernon-Williams, who has it all but so desperately wants to be bad. High school life is portrayed throughout the story with the emphasis on a group of delinquents called the “Drapes” and their interaction with the rest of the town or the “Squares”. Can these two teenagers unite such a divided town or will social status keep them apart?

From the same producers that brought us Hairspray comes this edgy musical about teens, sex and rock ‘n’ roll. The show is a parody of teen musicals think Grease, Elvis films and 1950’s juvenile delinquent movies. While the film starring Johnny Depp before his Jack Sparrow days wasn’t a box office success it went on to become a cult classic. The fast-paced score for the stage version was written by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger with lyrics that express quite accurately teenaged angst.

The cast features Tony award winner Harriet Harris who is a stage favorite both on and off Broadway. She is best known for her over the top character Bebe in the sitcom Frasier from 1993 to 2004. She most recently appeared on television in a recurring role on Desperate Housewives. She won the Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her work in the 2002 production of Thoroughly Modern Millie. She has also played the role of Ms. Vernon-Williams in the LaJolla production and was most recently seen on Broadway in the 2007 production of Old Acquaintances. In the title role making his Broadway debut is James Snyder. His film credits include: She’s the Man, An American in China and Shuttle. This talented actor has also appeared in several television series including Without A Trace, Cold Case and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Cry-Baby is a fun, fast-paced musical that deals with some hard-hitting issues in a relaxed setting. The production takes the film to the next level and will give not only another generation of teens a taste of this story but theatergoers as well. If you are a fan of Hairspray, Grease and High School Musical then this is the show for you. Go see it! You’ll be glad you did!
