If you are a teenager of the 1980's, or if you love the avant-garde technique of film director John Waters various films,
then you can surely understand the significance of purchasing Cry-Baby tickets for yourself
and your family and friends. This quintessential master of camp and kitsch films, one of Waters' famous films is following
in its big sister's footsteps, and being adapted for the stage.
There are those who feel uncomfortable around even the idea of theater tickets, never mind
the idea of sitting in a theater for a play. However, John Waters' musical adaptation f his Johnny-Depp-lead film should not
instill those same worries, as the film is so familiar and comfortable to so very many fans. With the storyline, in all its
campy glory, fresh in people's mind, a foray into the theater should not be so nerve-wracking!
There is something about the pseudo-serious feeling behind Waters' film looking at the rebel of small-town America in the
conservative 1950's and the good-girl who falls in love with him, that makes nearly everyone who sees this movie, love it.
Familiar as the storyline is, and campy as the love between the good girl and the bad boy is, the feel-good music and loving
jabs poked at the film genre will surely translate brilliantly to the stage. Come see for yourself!
