Maybe Baby, It's You had three runs in New York City, including the last, a six month Off-Broadway stint that ended June 27. Now the two hander comedy about the modern search for a soul-mate opens in Los Angeles Nov. 7 for an open-ended run at the Coronet Theatre.
Maybe Baby stars the original creators, Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson. Veterans of Gotham City Improv, Shanian and Simpson also worked on a new musical, Adventures in Love. With music and lyrics by Zina Goldrich and Marcy Heisler, that show was produced by Kevin McCollum at the Ordway Music Theater in St. Paul.
Like a non-musical version of I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, Maybe Baby looks at dating, relationships and marriage through serio-comic sketches. Played between the longer pieces are audio clips of real-life interviews with people about their love lives and romantic needs.
Maybe Baby, It's You plays four nights a week, Wednesday-Saturday. The Coronet Theatre is located at 368 North La Cienega Boulevard in West Hollywood. For reservations, call (310) 657-7377.
