About this show

Baltimore 1954. 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 starts to rock around the clock. John Waters' cult film gets a theatrical polish in this hilarious new musical! The show features a book by Mark O'Donnell (Hairspray) and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers), and lyrics and music by David Javerbaum (The Daily Show with Jon Steward) and Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne). Mark Brokaw directs. Additional Ticket Information Students, seniors and military receive $3.00 off single tickets for all performances except previews and Saturday evenings. When ordering, you must provide a valid military ID, student ID or proof of age.
