NORTH FORK LIVE SHOWS
Cry-Baby the Musical
Through November 6
In 1950s Baltimore, the conservative squares face off against the leather-clad delinquents in this rockabilly musical based on John Waters’ cult film of the same name. Rebellious teen Cry-Baby and the square rich girl Allison are star-crossed lovers at the center of this rock-and-roll Romeo and Juliet. This satirical, yet funny, musical will have you tapping your toes and smiling. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances are at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $30.
