The story of John Waters’s Cry-Baby, which follows a cute misfit who’s got it bad for the blonde preppy chick, had us swooning over Johnny Depp in his rockabilly suit, leather jacket, and Elvis pompadour. Tonight, we’ll be not only swooning, but also singing at the Cry-Baby Sing-Along. Enjoy songs such as “King Cry-Baby,” featuring Ricki Lake before she lost all that weight, “High School Hellcats,” with Amy Locane (before her career went from high to DUI), and the rest of the tunes that had us wishing we were locked up in love.
