1, 2, 3 Go! Three reasons to see
`The Play About the Baby'
1. It was written by Edward Albee, who has been shocking audiences
since the '50s and is not about to stop now.
2. In this play, there's a boy and a girl (who are naked) and who may
(or may not) have a baby, who may (or may not) be connected to other
babies in the fabulously enigmatic Albee canon. You decide.
3. This production, the West Coast premiere, is being staged by Berkeley's
gutsy Shotgun Players in their old stamping grounds at La Val's Subterranean,
1834 Euclid Ave.
8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and 7 p.m. Sundays, through Dec. 28. $10-$18.
