Direction by Paula Cortis
Musical Direction by Tom Slowick
“BABY” tells the story of three couples on a university campus as they deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of this universal experience. There are the college students, barely at the beginning of their adult lives; the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving but determined to try; and the middle aged parents, looking forward to seeing their last child graduate from college when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started. A smart, energetic show with loads of charm, “BABY” has a modern, up-to-date sensibility, with strong female characters, a hysterically insightful book by Sybille Pearson and a tuneful, and contemporary score of show stopping numbers by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. The team of Maltby and Shire wrote the smash hit “Big, The Musical” and, independently, Maltby worked on “Miss Saigon” and Shire as an Oscar-winner for his film music. “BABY” went on to be nominated for 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical.
