PHOTO CALL: Musical Cry-Baby Reaches Broadway

News   PHOTO CALL: Musical Cry-Baby Reaches Broadway Cry-Baby, a new musical based on the John Waters 1950's Baltimore-set film, plays on Broadway at the Marquis Theatre.

Mark Brokaw directs the musical with songs by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger and a book by Thomas Meehan and Mark O'Donnell.

In Cry-Baby, press notes state, "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 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 50's come to life! For real this time!"

James Snyder stars in the title role opposite Tony Award winner Harriet Harris. The cast also features Elizabeth Stanley, Carly Jibson, Chester Gregory II, Christopher J. Hanke, Lacey Kohl, Alli Mauzey, Courtney Balan and Richard Poe.
