Cry-Baby

Date: 6 Jun 2018

It’s 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore.

A bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll, Cry-Baby and the square rich girl Allison are the star-crossed lovers at the centre of this musical based on the 1990 film by Baltimore’s own John Waters.

Christian Charisiou takes the title role in this Alexander Berlage-directed production. Laura Murphy, Joel Granger, Beth Daly and Alfie Gledhill feature.
