“The road was straight true that brought us here”…to this lovely duet featuring two of our favorite voices. Listen to Wicked star Julia Murney and Broadway alum Robert H. Fowler sing “And What If We Had Loved Like That” from the Off-Broadway revival of Baby below ahead of the album’s full release next week.

The Out of the Box Theatrics production, which ran at Theatrelab in 2021, examined the show through a modern-day lens. It earned a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Revival of a Musical.

The Baby: New Off-Broadway Cast Recording will drop February 14, from Yellow Sound Label, and is currently available for pre-order here. In addition, a February 13 concert at The Green Room 42 in NYC, featuring the entire cast, will celebrate the release. A live stream option is also available. Click here for tickets and more information.

The album honors the 40th anniversary of the show’s original production, featuring new and never-before-recorded material. Originally produced on Broadway in 1983, Baby features a book by Sybille Pearson, music by David Shire, and lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., based upon a story developed with Susan Yankowitz.

“We wrote Baby in 1983 and since then the entire universe has changed,” said Maltby, Jr. “Revisiting and updating the show has been very exciting, and even with the updates, the process made us realize the heart of the show hasn’t aged at all.”

The Off-Broadway album features Murney as Arlene, Fowler as Alan, Christina Sajous as Pam, Gabrielle McClinton as Nicki, Elizabeth Flemming as Lizzie, and Johnny Link as Danny. The ensemble includes Jorge Donoso, Marisa Kirby, Jewell Noel, and Ethan Paulini. In the production, Danielle Summons played Pam and Jamila Sabares-Klemm played Nicki.

Baby explores the ways people experience pregnancy and parenthood. It follows two college students; a pair of thirty-somethings having trouble conceiving; and a middle-aged couple rediscovering their passion.
