The Jan. 2 matinee of the romantic comedy, Maybe Baby, It's You, will be its last performance at the SoHo Playhouse off-Broadway. The romantic comedy, which opened Nov. 9, ends its run after 16 previews and 64 regular performances. Actors Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson first played the piece in a three-week run at OOB's Currican Theatre this past summer. Jeremy Dobrish, artistic director of the Adobe Theatre Company, directs Maybe 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 the author of the 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, Libby Anne Russler and Allan Sandler. 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.
The SoHo Playhouse is located at 15 Vandam Street, NYC. Tickets run $35 $47.50. Ample street parking is available near the theatre. For tickets call (212) 239 6200.
