Original BABY Star Liz Callaway to Lead Benefit Concert in San Diego, 3/8
On Saturday, March 8 (2pm & 7:30pm) the Scripps Research Institute Auditorium will host a special concert performance of the the Maltby and Shire musical Baby, benefitting Miracle Babies. The special event will feature original Broadway cast member Liz Callaway, along with Richard Kind, Ilene Graff, Douglas Sills, Kerry O'Malley, Thomas C. Kouo, Sue Goodman, Ashley Fox Linton, Julie Garnye, Melissa Lone, Heidi Meyer, Jason Graae, Tim Nelson, David Zack, Warren Sheir, and vocal swing: Parnia Ayari.
In the show, three couples, each newly expecting a child, have different but familiar reactions. Lizzie and Danny are university juniors who have just moved in together. Athletic Pam and her husband, Nick, a sports instructor, have had some trouble conceiving. Arlene, already the mother of three grown daughters, is unsure of what to do, contemplating abortion while her husband Alan is thrilled with the thought of a new baby. Throughout the show, these characters experience the emotional stresses and triumphs, the desperate lows and the comic highs, that accompany the anticipation and arrival of a baby.
