With a book by Sybillie Pearson, music by Shire, and lyrics by Maltby, Jr., Baby follows three couples on a university campus dealing with the consequences of the universal experience of pregnancy and upcoming parenthood.

Earlier this season, Ripley returned to her role as Trish in the Out of the Box Theatrics production of The Pink Unicorn. She was also recently seen in the North Shore Music Theatre production of Sunset Boulevard.

Baby will also have music direction by Cody Dry, production design by Rien Schlecht, lighting design by Frank Hartley, and stage management by Kara Procell and Cara Feuer. Tina Scariano will serve as associate producer.
