About the event

Based on the cult-classic 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby The Musical boasts a hilariously absurd book from the writer of Hairspray, and an insanely catchy score featuring song titles like 'I’m Infected' and 'Girl, Can I Kiss You With Tongue?'. "Cry - Baby celebrates the joy all bad little teenage boys and girls feel the first time they hear music that causes trouble in their own homes". (John Waters) All these elements combine to create a unique, strange and totally endearing musical.

It’s 1954. Baltimore is a topsy-turvy moral meritocracy. At the centre of this world are star-crossed lovers Wade 'Cry - Baby' Walker – the coolest boy in Baltimore – and his rich but square object of desire, Allison. Cry - Baby is a bad boy with a great cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll – so, fuelled by hormones and the new rhythms of popular music, Allison turns her back on her King-of-the-Squares boyfriend Baldwin to become a ‘Drape’, and Cry - Baby’s girl.

The stage is set for a battle between the squeaky-clean, close-harmony Squares and the rock-and-roll juvenile delinquent Drapes. Whose side are you on?

Winner of 4 Sydney Theatre Awards including Best Musical, Best Direction and Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Musical.
