Cry-Baby Aims for March Broadway Debut

News   Cry-Baby Aims for March Broadway Debut
 
Cry-Baby, the new musical based upon the John Waters Universal Pictures film of the same name, is aiming for a March 2008 bow on Broadway with an official opening in April.

The musical features a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan and a score by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger. Mark Brokaw will direct with choreography by Rob Ashford.

The out-of-town tryout will be presented at the La Jolla Playhouse Nov. 6-Dec. 16.

Set in 1954 Baltimore, Cry-Baby is described as such: "Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism, and Wade 'Cry-Baby' Walker is the baddest boy in town. He's a rebel with a cause — truth, justice and the pursuit of rock 'n' roll — and when he falls for a good girl, this square little suburb is sure to rock around the clock."

No casting has been announced for either the world-premiere La Jolla engagement or the Broadway run.
