Jeremy Dobrish, the artistic director of New York City's critically acclaimed Adobe Theatre Company, is embarking on a project outside his troupe, directing Off-Broadway's, Maybe Baby, It's You. The piece, written and performed by Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson, will begin performances at the Currican Theatre July 28 for a run through Aug. 15.
Simpson and Shanian met four years ago while performing improv and soon after began working on what became Maybe Baby. In the piece, they play eleven couples, each person searching for the perfect match. Interwoven into the show are the recorded romantic musings of strangers strolling through Central Park, gathered by Simpson and Shanian.
Dobrish directed Duet! and Notions in Motions, both highly acclaimed comedies for his own adobe theatre company. Duet! marked the Off-Broadway debut for the troupe.
The producers of Maybe, Baby hope that the Currican Theatre is only a temporary stop on the way to a commercial run at a larger Off-Broadway theatre.
