New Play Opening
A World Premiere play, Baby GirL, a dramedy based on a true story written and directed by Kim Ehly, opens this weekend at Empire Stage in Ft. Lauderdale. The play tells the story of a woman, Ashley, who was conceived twice in one lifetime; once by lusty, passionate teenagers and then by conservative adoptive parents who eventually abhor everything about her life. Baby GirL is about Ashley’s coming out, and her journey to find love and a place to call home.
Baby GirL runs July 13 – August 5, Fri and Sat at 8pm and Sun at 5pm. Preview performance on July 12 at 8pm. All performances are at Empire Stage, 1140 North Flagler Dr. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. Phone number 954-678-1496. For tickets visit: www.smarttix.com or www.empirestage.com
