BABY tells the story of three couples on a university campus dealing with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the universal experience of pregnancy and upcoming parenthood. There are the college students, barely at the beginning of their adult lives; the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving but determined to try; and the middle-aged parents, looking forward to seeing their last child graduate from college... when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started.

Schneider said, "We are so proud of the incredible work that Planned Parenthood has accomplished and we wanted to do our small part to demonstrate our support for their services. I am very happy that Mr. Maltby, Mr. Shire, and Ms. Pearson have enthusiastically agreed. Baby is a favorite amongst many in the community and I am eagerly looking forward to bringing it back to New York audiences on March 18th."
