Darkly Comedic! Eclipse Theatre Company Presents Baby with the Bathwater at The Athenaeum Theatre (Through May 19, 2019)

A young couple hires a nanny to help with their baby. They don’t want to define the gender, so they just refer to it as baby. They haven’t even named it by the time the nanny arrives. The nanny treats the baby very roughly by just throwing it around. They eventually decide the baby is a girl and name her Daisy. However, at age 15, Daisy has realized that he is a boy. He wants to change his name and stop wearing dresses. This all leads to many therapy sessions unpacking his childhood.
Elise Marie Davis (At The Table, Girl in the Red Corner) is hilarious at the completely aloof mother. Tyler Anthony Smith is excellent as the equally lost father. Jamie Bragg is fantastic as the uncaring nanny doing whatever she pleases. Jose M Cervantes shines as Daisy, struggling to figure out his life after being raised in such a strange manner. And lastly, Kirby Gibson is solid as Cynthia.
