Cry-Baby is to follow quirky moviemaker John Waters' Hairspray to Broadway. The 1990 film, starring Johnny Depp, was turned into a stage musical last year (07), when it debuted in California. Like Waters' other camp hit about life in Baltimore, Hairspray, Cry-Baby will now hit New York. The show opens on Broadway on 24 April (08) with James Snyder taking on the role Depp played in the film.
