Dated, Disappointing, Slow, Thought-provoking, Good songs

See it if You like the theme of babies and how they affect lives. A pleasant show is fine, it need not be great. Very simple staging is OK with you.

Don't see it if You are looking for earth shaking spectacular music and drama. Baby is not on that scale. The theme is pregnancy and its highs and lows.

Tuneful, Lovely score, Nice show but dull production., Occasionally sweet and endearing

See it if You've never heard this score before, you like stories about relationships and what bonds people together, nice songs with witty lyrics.

Don't see it if Don't like parenting themes (hoped for, thwarted, unexpected) etc. This production is generally ok, but often uninspired, dull, long.

Dated, Slow, Relevant, Disappointing, Clever

See it if You enjoy parenting — & Maltby and Shire's generally clever & well-crafted, rarely seen work, but here a little too "Broadway" & dated.

Don't see it if You don't like or want babies; if friends' preoccupation with pregnancy annoys; if a bare-bones production & uneven cast is too lacking.

Something missing

See it if You really enjoy a good score and have a lot of patience. Enjoy actors with good voices trying hard.

Don't see it if You don't like a spare production that could have used some oomph. Can't get past the miscast oldest couple still having a baby

Slow, Fluffy, Disappointing, Comunity theater

See it if You want to see a production of Baby if you've never seen it and want to become familiar with the show itself.

Don't see it if Just a piano won't due for you. You want production values.

Disappointing, Community theatre, Underwhelming talent

See it if you have never seen "Baby". It has some wonderful music in it, and the book is decent. Some good moments but an amateur production.

Don't see it if want to hear great singing or good actors. Really poor casting choices. NYC has much more talent that this. Dull, uninspired direction.

Cliched, Dated, Disappointing

See it if You enjoy shows about couples trying to have a baby. Some of the actors sing better than others, but the first act alone was 1 1/2 hours.

Don't see it if You don't like long shows about couples having babies.

Slow, Disappointing, Started out entertaining, but it seemed endless

See it if a LONG production of pleasant enough entertainers who seem to try way too hard. One male lead sings so loud that others are drowned out.

Don't see it if You would like a short and sweet production. I wanted to like this and did for the first half hour, but it just went on and on and on.
