The people behind turning “Hairspray” into a Broadway musical are hoping to strike gold twice with another John Water’s film “Crybaby.” Like “Hairspray,” the movie has a very musical theme to it, so it will probably translate well to the stage. I honestly don’t know if it was the best pick though. I mean if the movie is on I usually will watch it, but it’s not one of my faves and is so incredibly cheesy. Personally I would have much preferred to see “Serial Mom” be turned into a musical. I mean can you just imagine how much fun the prank phone call song would have been? Let’s not even get into the pussywillows song!
