Cry-Baby: The Musical

July 12 – July 29, 2018
Tickets go on sale: June 5. 2018

Book by Thomas Meehan & Mark O’Donnell, Music and Lyrics by Adam Schlesinger & David Javerbaum

It's 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He's a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of rock and roll, she turns her back on her squeaky-clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to be with Cry-Baby. Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents. It's Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats. Filled with unforgettable songs and a fresh story, “Cry-Baby” will dance its way into the audience's heart!
