Much to the surprise of no one, it has been announced that Cry-Baby will close June 22. The new John Waters' musical (following his smash-hit Hairspray) had all of the makings for a kick-ass new show, but somehow couldn't follow through.

Cry-Baby does have some redeeming qualities (namely awesome choreography and a spunky cast). And it was nominated for a Tony for Best Musical (although it obviously didn't win). Check out the show until Sunday, June 22, or wait for the national tour in 2009. You can get student rush tickets for $26.50 or pay $35 for a seat toward the back.
