Set in 1954 in Baltimore and fueled by rock and roll, this romantic comedy tells the story of two star-crossed lovers, Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker—the leader of a group of juvenile delinquents known as “Drapes”—and rich, good girl Allison Vernon-Williams, who has grown tired of her straight-laced life. Complicating matters are Allison’s jealous boyfriend, the squeaky-clean Baldwin Blandish, and his pals “the Squares,” and Lenora Frigid, who has a crush on Cry-Baby.
"Cry-Baby" features music and lyrics by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger, with a book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan. The musical, based on the 1990 John Waters film of the same name, premiered in November 2007 and opened on Broadway in April 2008, receiving four Tony Award nominations.
