Vancouver Fringe Festival review: Cry-Baby the Musical

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      When teenage bad boy (with a sensitive side) Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker meets suburban sweetheart Allison Vernon-Williams, sparks fly and 1950s Baltimore is turned upside down.

      Teen angst, romance, and fearlessness challenge societal prejudice and classism in this hilarious, high-energy musical.

      The show is driven by the sensational Victor Hunter, whose characterization conjures shades of Elvis Presley and Johnny Depp; the standout performance of sweet Katrina Teitz; and a fabulous cast of young talent. This over-the-top satiric musical with a sincere and timeless message is a rocking good time.
