Perhaps where “Baby” suffers the most is in it’s lack of rehearsal and commitment with both of it’s actors. Yes, these broadway veterans are superb on their own, but together their lack of on stage chemistry ultimately takes away from what could otherwise be a near perfect show. You can’t be afraid to touch your scene partner, especially in one of the most critical moments of the show.
That said, Baby is still worth seeing, it’s a brilliantly crafted script by Lisa Ebersole, brought to life, simply, almost perfectly by Matt Soson. It could use some line throughs, some projection, and a little bit more chemistry.
