I am trying to organize a school trip to see a show, and all the mainstream shows (Xanadu, TLM, YF,) are harder to get tickets for. That being said what's Cry bABY LIKE IS IT FAST FUN AND FUNNY WOULD A HIGH SCHOOL choir group enjoy it. I have read the reviews but i'd like to hear some of your opinions thanks

Ive only heard the 22 track demo for the show and its a very lively show (the music style is very similar to grease)

A high school choir group would like any of the above mentioned shows -- but LB tends to be more a hit with the girls.

I think they'd like Cry-Baby a lot. It's funny and edgy enough without offending parents.

(SPOILER)

It has songs like "Girl, Can I Kiss You With Tongue?" and "I'm Infected" (playing off of both the infectiousness of new love and the sexual double entendre that accompanies it). That should give you an idea of the tone of the show.

(END SPOILER

Legally Blonde is a good choice for the girls, but if you want a show that can cater to both sexes, I'd go to Cry-Baby first.
If the audience could do better, they'd be up here on stage and I'd be out there watching them. - Ethel Merman

I also agree with Legally Blonde! If you have the time, see Cry Baby too!
