'Cry Baby' Hitting Great White Way

Waters Takes The Stage Again

The successful Broadway production of John Waters‘ hit, Hairspray, spurred Waters and producers to adapt another movie hit, Cry Baby. Writes NYDN‘s Ben Widdicombe,

Are you ready for a Broadway standard called “Girl, Can I Kiss You With Tongue?”

That’s one of the numbers in Cry Baby, the next John Waters -film-turned-musical coming to the Great White Way, in March.

Young James Snyder will play the role made famous by Johnny Depp in 1990. “John Waters is like the quirky uncle you always wanted,” he told me Sunday at a birthday for Adam Epstein, who is producing Cry Baby after taking home a Tony for Hairspray.

No crying here, baby.
