​The Department of Performing Arts presents its spring musical production, "Baby," in McCrary Theatre Feb. 8 through 11, with shows at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday and a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.

Elon's production is directed and choreographed by Linda Sabo with Musical direction by Valerie Maze. The book is by Sybille Pearson, lyrics are by Richard Maltby, Jr., music is by David Shire, and the musical is based upon a story developed with Susan Yankowitz.

​"Baby" is a musical that takes place on a college campus and explores the reactions of three couples to each couple’s unexpected pregnancy: college juniors who have just moved in together, a thirty-something couple who have had trouble conceiving, and a mid-40s Dean and his wife who already have grown children.

​As New York Times critic Frank Rich wrote about the original, “Mr. Shire writes with sophistication over a range that embraces rock, jazz and the best of Broadway schmaltz. ... Mr. Maltby's lyrics are not just smart and funny, but often ingenious." 

Admission: $13 or Elon ID. Tickets available now at the Center for the Arts Box Office. For information, call (336) 278-5610.
