"AND BABY MAKES SEVEN is a profound and clever comedy." —Drama-Logue. "What's remarkable about BABY—a really lovely play—is the sense of innocence and optimism that rises from potentially dark subject matter." —Philadelphia City Paper. "AND BABY MAKES SEVEN is a hilariously inventive play. Playwright Vogel's writing is witty and precise." —Daily Californian. "Don't you sometimes want to howl like a dog, giggle till you drop, pout, pitch a fit…eat like a pig, get-your-own-way-no-matter-what, fly off with the balloons? You can go to Esalen and take a Trans-actional Analysis weekend to learn about your Child Within, or you can see AND BABY MAKES SEVEN. The second way comes with brownies at intermission." —Providence Phoenix. "Filled with outrageous touches, AND BABY MAKES SEVEN offers one of those rare theatergoing opportunities where everything comes together in a string of magical moments. Be prepared to be enchanted seven times over." —Austin American Statesman. "What makes AND BABY MAKES SEVEN fascinating is its brilliant unsettling of our notions, not of sexual boundaries, but of the real. It is theatre that cleverly theatricalises the everyday in a way that is both startling and funny." —Age (Australia). "[BABY is] most original and important for its redefinition of family. What is one to make of a family in which the boundaries between illusion and reality, power and subjection, friendship and love, female and male, are so porous…and in which family members freely materialize and dematerialize. It is a celebration of narrative, of the power of the theatre to make fantasy real. It commemorates the childhood one never had, the friends wished for but never gained, the desires never acknowledged." —David Savran, Introduction to The Baltimore Waltz and Other Plays.
