In January 2010, long-time LA actress of TV and film, Brooke Baumer, got a brilliant idea to try and time the birth of her second child to occur during her favorite month of the year. Over the next 9 months, everything that could go wrong, both with the pregnancy and life, went wrong. What started out as a 10-minute storytelling piece has evolved into “October Baby,” a 60-min. solo performance with 20+ characters that chronicles the journey — in utero and out! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll walk away with a new perspective on the need to control.
October Baby made its world premiere on February 19, 2017 to a sellout crowd in Los Angeles as part of Solofest 2017, the largest solo theatre festival on the West Coast. It is directed and developed by Jessica Lynn Johnson, a published playwright, recipient of BEST NATIONAL SOLO ARTIST AWARD, member of the LA Women’s Theatre Festival Submission Screening Panel and founder of Soaring Solo Theatre Company.
Please note there will be NO late seating for “October Baby.”
