Actors Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson will move their successful romantic comedy, Maybe Baby, It's You to the SoHo Playhouse this fall after a three-week run at the Currican Theatre in NYC. An opening date has not been set, but previews begin Oct. 26.
Jeremy Dobrish, artistic director of the Adobe Theatre Company, directs the show which a production spokesperson described as being about "finding your ideal soul mate." Last season, Dobrish produced and directed the Off-Broadway play Duet!. He is about to release a new book, "Plays by Jeremy Dobrish."
Producers for the show are Madeline Austin, who discovered the piece in an acting class, as well as Roger Alan Gindi, Bruce Lazarus, Scott Benedict, Dana Matthow and Libby Anne Russler. Of this group, Gindi, Lazarus and Russler were the producers of last season's Shakespeare's R & J which started at the Expanded Arts before moving to the John Houseman Theatre, where it ran for a year.
Maybe Baby, It's You will run Tue.-Sun. at the SoHo Playhouse, 15 Vandam Street, NYC. For tickets call (212) 239-6200.
