Set in 1950s Baltimore, the conservative squares face off against the leather-clad delinquents in this rockabilly musical from the creative team behind Hairspray — Thomas Meehan and Mark O’Donnell — featuring a score from Fountains of Wayne co-founder Adam Schlesinger and “The Daily Show” executive producer David Javerbaum.  
 
Directed by Ryan Bowie and choreographed by Emily Rourke with music direction by Tyler Saunders, CRY-BABY stars Matthew Combs and Caitlyn Porayko as bad boy Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker and square rich girl Allison Vernon-Williams, a pair of star-crossed lovers at the center of a world where everyone likes Ike and nobody likes communism.
 
The coolest boy in Baltimore, Cry-Baby is a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock ‘n’ roll.  Fueled by hormones and the new rhythms of the times, Allison turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend to become a “drape” (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby’s moll.

Matthew Combs, Stacy Turner and Caitlyn Porayko star in "Cry-Baby: The Musical" at the Roxy Regional Theatre, June 3rd - 18th.
