The world premiere of Jessica Goldberg’s darkly comic ‘Babe’ empowers women at the Echo Theater.
Old habits die hard. The Echo Theater Company presents a dark comedy about cultural evolution and the selves we thought we knew. Chris Fields directs the world premiere of Babe by Jessica Goldberg, running September 17 through October 24 at the Echo’s home at Atwater Village Theatre. Three Pay-What-You-Previews are set for September 14, 15 and 16.
Abby has been discovering new talent since the ’90s, when she became the right hand to A&R (“Artists & Repertoire”) legend Gus. Together, they signed big bands, loved, fought and lived hard. It was the best kind of work marriage—at least that's how Abby sees it. That is until Gen Z Kaitlin shows up, hell bent on showing these old rockers it's 2022, and there’s a new generation hell-bent on changing the world. Evolve or die. Who goes down?
“This play is about a new generation of women who are re-framing what used to be accepted social constructs,” says Goldberg. “I’m from the generation that was complicit, who went along and laughed at the joke. I’ve spent a lot of time in my life being called ‘Babe.’ The play takes place in the world of the music business, but it could just as well be Hollywood or Big Tech. With the overturning of Roe, we need to remain vigilant.”
“At its heart, Babe is a love story, the story of three people in love with music—and what society has taught them and allowed them to do with that,” says Fields. “Jessica’s strength has always been her ability to put a human face on difficult issues. Like all her plays, this one is relatable, funny and poignant.”
Babe opens on Saturday, Sept. 17, with performances continuing on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 4 p.m. and Mondays at 8 p.m. through October 24. Three preview performances are set for Wednesday, Sept. 14 Thursday, Sept. 15 and Friday, Sept. 16, each at 8 p.m. Tickets are $34 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
