Plot Summary: 

Winner of the Drama Desk award, and nominated for a Tony in 1984, Baby is about three couples each expecting a child and dealing with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the universal 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, when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started. Broadway veterans Richard Maltby, Jr. (AIN’T MISBEHAVIN,’ MISS SAIGON) and David Shire (SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, BIG, the Musical) have written the peppy, fun musical score.
