Written by Sybille Pearson with music by David Shire and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., "Baby, the Musical" concerns three couples on a university campus as they deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of conceiving a baby. 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 leads to a surprise pregnancy. The musical first ran on Broadway from 1983 to 1984 and was nominated for Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Original Score. With an upbeat musical score embracing jazz, folk,and pop styles, this charming show takes a humorous and heartfelt look at "what to expect when you are expecting". Mitch Rosengarten was the director and choreographer. Music was under the direction of Diane Chartrand and Gretchen Doiron.
