Babies – A New(Born) British Musical at the Lyric Theatre

Crossroads Live (The Bodyguard, Annie, Chicago, Cats, The Drifters Girl ) and theatre development company Indigo Productions (led by James Lane and Ed McGovern) are thrilled to announce that Babies, a brand-new British coming-of-age musical written by Jack Godfrey (42 Balloons, This Is A Love Story) and the show’s director Martha Geelan (who makes her debut as a musical book writer), will play three staged concert performances at The Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue on 10th, 11th and 12th November 2023.

Babies - A New(Born) British MusicalSummer is over. Exams are looming. But Year 11 are only talking about one thing: babies. Not real ones…but the plastic simulator dolls they’ve been tasked with looking after for a whole entire week.

With a blistering pop-rock score, this new(born) British musical follows nine students as they discover that becoming a parent means changing more than just nappies. Friendships are tested, dreams are questioned, and the true meaning of responsibility rears its terrifying head.

From Jack Godfrey & Martha Geelan, Babies is a joy-filled, heart-wrenching comedy about growing out of growing up.

Producer for Crossroads Live and Indigo Productions, James Lane said: “The mission with Babies has been to create a relatable window into the whirlwind experience of being a teenager in today’s world and to deliver a realistic depiction of school life and coming-of-age. We hope that everyone, in some way, can see both themselves and fragments of their own experiences in one, or maybe even a few, of the brilliant characters Martha and Jack have so wonderfully brought to life. This musical has had such a unique journey thus far – it will be a proud moment to welcome audiences to see it in concert on a West End stage.
