The relationship comedy, Maybe Baby, It's You has aãó0nced Nov. 9 as its opening date at the Soho Playhouse in New York City. Performances begin Oct. 26 for the open-ended engagement.
As reported earlier, Actors Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson will move their successful romantic comedy to the SoHo Playhouse after a three week run at the Currican Theatre this past summer.
