 It’s 1954—everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He’s 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 star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. At the other end of the topsy-turvy moral spectrum of 1954 America, Baldwin is the king of the squares and leads his close-harmony pals against the juvenile delinquents. You’ll have a blast watching the conservative squares face off against the leather-clad delinquents in this rockabilly musical  based on John Waters’ cult film.
