Desperate to protect her daughter -- and to keep her from being "recalled" by the government in order to be cured of her psychopathic impulses -- single mom Justine is on the run with teenage Lucy. Seeking safety in this dystopian near future is no easy task, so Justine and Lucy consider themselves lucky to wind up at a safe house run by a mysterious man named David. But it isn't long before hidden agendas and rising interests hurl these characters towards some decidedly dark and drastic consequences. Hailed during its off-Broadway run as "twisty and tense" by The New York Times, and "entertaining and unsettling" by New York Magazine, Recall now makes its West Coast premiere at the Lex Theatre.

I attended a performance of THE BABY last Friday evening with a friend. The film of the same name is a cult favorite that we've both seen and enjoyed. The staged version is a slightly condensed rendering of the material but the camp value is definitey played for laughs. The entire cast did a wonderful job, particularly the actors portraying Mrs. Wadsworth and the social worker, Mrs. Gentry. If you're easily shocked skip this one, as it carries a self-imposed 'X' rating for subject matter. There's nothing actually offensive on view, save a quick topless scene that's played for laughs. All in all, a fun, fast 75 minute production that's definitely affordable thanks to Goldstar!
Quotes & Highlights
“Gleefuly perverse … So weird it will almost have your eyes a-bugging and your jaw a-gaping … Hilarious production boasts crisp comic timing and a delicious campiness.” —_LA Weekly _
“A 75-minute onslaught of campy psychosis … This is utterly sick shit, and hysterical throughout, with all the incest, murder, bright colors, brain damage, and bad disco dancing you could possibly dream of, capped off with a twist ending to die for.” —Fangoria
“Fully committed to the tropes and excesses of exploitation cinema, the cast and crew of The Baby revel in this sick and demented little domestic melodrama … This is a loving farce of an obscure and obscene film, and is the most fun I’ve had at a play in a long time.” —_Mad Theatrics _
“This thing is just twisted, funny and wacky … Consistently depraved in a consistently silly way.” —_Bitter Lemons _
