Is there anything more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than the final frontier of–PARENTHOOD?! Baby, the musical from acclaimed duo, Richard Maltby, Jr., and David Shire, examines how parents-to-be experience the emotional stresses and triumphs, as well as the desperate lows and the comic highs that accompany the anticipation and arrival of a baby. Three couples on a university campus deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the experience of pregnancy and upcoming parenthood. 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…. until a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started!
