Department of Performing Arts presents "Baby"

Performances run Thursday through Sunday, Feb. 8 - 11; evenings at 7:30 p.m., additional Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. in McCrary Theatre. Directed and choreographed by Linda Sabo with Musical direction by Valerie Maze. 


Book by Sybille Pearson, Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.,  Music by David Shire, 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 Jan. 18 at the Center for the Arts Box Office. For information, call (336) 278-5610.
