Waters' "Hairspray" and "Cry-Baby" were the inspiration for the two Broadway musicals of the same name: The Tony-winning Hairspray plays the Neil Simon Theatre, and Cry-Baby recently opened at the Marquis. During the half-hour "Theater Talk," Waters will, according to press notes, discuss "his family, his infamous leading 'lady,' Divine, and how he put himself on the cultural map by producing outrageous independent movies like 'Pink Flamingos,' 'Female Trouble' and 'Cry-Baby.'"
This episode of "Theater Talk" will air at 12:30 AM ET on WNET/Thirteen.
"Theater Talk" is hosted by New York Post theatre columnist Michael Riedel and producer Susan Haskins. For more information visit www.theatertalk.org.
