Our advice? Don’t miss the last performance of Baby GirL, this Sunday at noon at the Kraine Theater. It’s comical, poignant, entertaining and one of the best off-off Broadway plays we’ve seen in a very long time. An official selection of the 18th annual NYC International Fringe Festival, the hit play has been enjoying sold-out performances all month.
Based on true events, Baby GirL is both written and directed by Kim Ehly, the artistic director of Kutumba Theatre Project in Ft. Lauderdale. The talented cast includes Christa Meyers, Nori Tecosky, Amy Bizjak, Samuel Floyd, Noah Levine, Jessica Farr, Lucy McMichael and Joe Wissler.
The play’s protagonist is Ashley (Christa Meyers), an adopted kid who grows up gay in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Later, as a young woman, she comes out to her adoptive family and embarks on a weird yet wonderful journey to find her biological parents. Along the way, there are plenty of laughs, cringeworthy moments, and highs and lows on the path to self-acceptance that we can all relate to.
The final performance of Baby GirL is Sunday, August 24 at 12 p.m., at The Kraine Theater, 85 E. 4th St. in the East Village.
Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at fringeNYC.org.
