“I’m Infected”: Cry-Baby – Original Studio Cast Recording

The original 2008 Broadway production of Cry-Baby may not have been a hit on Broadway, having run a short 68 performances and garnering a handful of Tony Award nominations before closing. Based on the popular 1990 John Waters film starring Johnny Depp, Ricki Lake and Polly Bergan, the stage production seemed to come on the scene hoping to capture the same momentum that another Waters’ adaptation, a little show called Hairpsray, had achieved (it had a book by Hairspray’s Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan). This was not to be and the most unfortunate part of its early demise was that it never received an original cast recording.

Until now.
