Baby Girl showcases the frenzied life of a girl named Elise. In the course of a few days, Elise deals with at least three men in love with her, having to sleep with her no-name newborn in their car, the baby’s father turning transsexual and much more. And while the play may seem a little soap opera-ish at times, it more than makes up for it in entertainment value.
Trisha LaFache (Elise) perfectly portrays the young New Yorker lost and confused in a world she herself created. The other cast members also add to the convincing world of NYC life – where nothing (and I mean nothing) is unusual.
Baby Girl is fast-paced fun that will definitely have you on the edge of your seat – yearning to know what other mischief Elise will get herself into. Also, its comedy takes the edge off of what normally would be seen as a serious situation and creates a highly entertaining performance.
