Wade in the Waters

I liked the original Hairspray movie, but I loved John Waters' follow-up, Cry-Baby. It didn't hurt that he brought the film to USC for a special screening when I was a film student there, and that I had just discovered the great movie musicals of Minnelli, Donen, Walters et al. In the years since I haven't followed Waters' career as closely, and hadn't given CB a thought for some time. So writing about the new Broadway-bound adaptation was a welcome reimmersion in Waters' world.
