THE BABY DANCE

A play by Jane Anderson

Directed by Grace Kiley

Produced by Mark Pinals & Colin Campbell

in association with Kiley Ensemble

A revival of the Off-Broadway hit

Run Time: 1 hour 20 minutes without intermission

Theater: The Players Theatre

            115 MacDougal Street, New York, NY 10012

            Steve & Marie Sgouros Black Box Theater, 3rd Floor

Kiley Ensemble revives The Baby Dance, the story of two couples: a well-off California husband & wife who have everything except a baby, and the struggling Louisiana parents who've agreed to give them for adoption their soon-to-be-born fifth child.

 

What seems to be a mutually beneficial arrangement turns out to be a powder keg of emotion - resentment, forgiveness, love, and self-doubt.  

Set during an oppressively hot summer in the Deep South, The Baby Dance is occasionally funny but never easy. The play explores class, motherhood, prejudice, loss, and the ways that our individual expectations serve both to bring us together and tear us apart.

AUDIENCE PRAISE FOR THE BABY DANCE

 

 

"See it if you love strong acting, or impeccable directing, or productions that create a maximal theater experience with a minimum of means."

     - Jim 7349, www.show-score.com

"Excellent acting with compassion and humor.  Anyone that has experienced either the humiliation and despair of poverty or infertility can relate."

     - Beth 7015, www.show-score.com

"I saw this play when it premiered in New York in 1991. I found it gripping and gut-wrenching then; I still do. The subject is now even more timely than it was 27 years ago!"

     - Norma, www.show-score.com

"Earnest cast gives nuance to complicated, fragile souls."

     - Alice 6119, www.show-score.com

"Very touching, emotional, funny and well-performed performance...It's theater magic. Just sit back and enjoy."
