The new show by playwright Chris Burns, My Mother's a Baby Boy, is set to close its scheduled run at the Kraine Theatre in downtown Manhattan Feb. 3. Burns also directed the production, which began performances Jan. 11 and opened Jan. 18.
In My Mother's a Baby Boy, Burns combined earlier one-act works with the same theme. He explores the relationships between a mother and a daughter, a boyfriend and a girlfriend, and two best friends. These modern urban pairs all battle with the dilemma that no matter how much you speak, no one ever truly communicates.
Most notable for his recreation of the infamous Orson Welles radio play, "War of the Worlds," in Los Angeles with Sting, U2's Bono, Peter Gabriel and the cast of "Friends." Joining Burns in this cast are Jane Casserly, Andrea Cirie, Helen Coxe, Caroline Ficksman, David Haugen, Tim McGee, Annie Meisels, Charlotte Patton, Stephen Speights and Baylen Thomas.
