Last Sunday, November 28th rehearsals for David Stallings' The Baby Monitor started at the 14th Street Y in the East Village. It's been wonderful to get started on this project that has been in the works since 2014. Although different versions of the play have received presentations and readings, this is the first full workshop of the full-length version, and every day we learn more about this very important play. We cannot wait to share it with you. The cast is simply exquisite.

A Latinx couple in the Bronx kidnaps a twelve-year old girl in a misguided attempt at creating a family. The girl claims to be clairvoyant and can communicate with the dead, including the couple’s own dead baby. She is also protected by a not-so-imaginary friend, whom she calls “The Grinch” (Yes, THAT Grinch, only more ghoulish!). Ultimately, a battle of wills ensues pitting faith, family, and politic against each other.The cast includes Raiane Cantisano (ms. estrada), Tanya Perez (Jessica Jones), Sean Carvajal (Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train), Mateo Moreno (Snipped/Cut/Tied), and Anthony Michael Irizarry.
Reading is free and will take place at The Mark O'Donnell Theater at The Actors Fund Arts Center (160 Schermerhorn St, Brooklyn, New York 11201)
