Editorial Reviews

NY Times
An invaluable self-portrait of sorts from one of the few genuinely great living American dramatists...BABY rockets into that special corner of theater heaven where words shoot off like fireworks into dazzling patterns and hues.
NY Newsday
An exhilarating, wicked, devastating piece of emotional terrorism.
Variety
A frequently funny and ultimately devastating battle of wills, which is unquestionably the main event of the Off-Broadway season...Albee's play is revealed here to be among his very finest.
Associated Press
At times, BABY is giddily funny, reminiscent of burlesque in its high spirits and banter. Albee has fashioned an absurdist black comedy before ending with a disquieting chill.
NY Daily News
An enriching, provocative work.
