Maybe Baby, It\'s You
Maybe Baby, It's You
"NO 'MAYBE' BABY, IT'S A WINNER
Maybe Baby is smart, funny, adorable." —New York Post

"These deceptively simple pieces posess a wisdom and good sense that explode gently in the mind afterward." —New York Post
Comedy. By Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson.

Cast: 1m., 1w. (May be expanded up to 14m., 11w.) Maybe Baby, It's You is a comedy about the search for that most elusive of entities, the soul mate, and told in a series of 11 vignettes that cover ground from the first kiss to the not-so-golden years of marriage. We take a raucous ride through male-female relationships with two searchers with a laundry list of must-have qualities for a mate that swiftly dwindles down to "warm and breathing" as the only prerequisite; a mild-mannered Midwesterner whose blind date turns out to be the Greek goddess Medea; a film noir couple who realize that their razor-sharp banter is hiding their fear and vulnerability; a gorgeous, charming brain surgeon who is always "Mr. Wrong" due to his penchant for spastic, arrhythmic club dancing; a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary who realize that marriage may not have ended their search for a soul mate; an elderly divorced couple who entertain the fantasy of a reconciliation at their grandson's soccer game; and other would-be and shouldn't-be couples trying to find each other. Maybe Baby, It's You. Or maybe…it isn't. Simple set. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
