Anyone want a baby?

August 16, 2016

Part of  The New York Musicals Festival (NYMF) 2016


I do not usually partake of the New York Musicals Festival, and not that I don't like musicals (I love musicals), it's more because I can be a complete New Yorker with great intentions and the next thing I know the final performance has happened already. Oops - a too common story. This year however, I was invited by a friend, Lori Ada Jaroslaw, to experience her musical The Baby Project. Wow, what a great show - funny, moving, relevant and informative. I truly appreciate all work that opens my eyes to sides of life I have never experienced. This is Lori's personal journey in becoming a parent; the intense emotional and institutional difficulties presented to a single gay parent trying, firstly to have a child, then to adopt one. In the case of The Baby Project, it's finally about adopting a teenager, a parallel to Lori's personal life journey.  I am a director not a writer, and most definitely not a critic, but this intelligent and beautiful show, really deserves to be picked up and produced regionally, if not beyond. I'll be keeping an eye out!
