About the show
Jamie had a baby. People ask her “how’s it going?” and she’s tired of saying “great!” Everyone lied to her about birth and beyond, so here’s the raw truth. After this show, people may now ask “is she ok?” Whether you have a kid, are thinking about having one, or can’t even keep a plant alive, it’s vital you attend.
Time Out New York (Critic's Pick): “Actress Jamie Aderski brings her solo show about the absurdity, mysteries and miseries of motherhood to the PIT. She faces the grim truths about maternity that nobody wants to talk about with joyous aplomb and plenty of laughs along the way.”
AFAR Local: “...there’s no excuse to miss this raw and hysterical portrayal of parenthood that’s just as appropriate for those who have kids at home as for those who intend never to procreate.”
The Broadway Blog: “Motherhood is no f-ing joke. And comic Jamie Aderski will be the first to agree with me on that … At its best, though, Aderski’s piece is personal and honest, which does strike a humorous chord, as so many of the hardest things in life can be if you just take a step back and see the funny through the pain.”
Comedy Cake: “This show will change your perceptions whether that bouncing baby is yours, you are thinking about popping one out, or you just abandoned your Tamagotchi after the first day. You just can’t miss Aderski’s one-woman show Cry Baby: My (Reluctant) Journey Into Motherhood at The Peoples Improv Theater!”
High Regard Show: “In her show (and our interview), Jamie gives a refreshingly eye-opening look into the reality and truths of motherhood, the lies she was told about it and how it’s not all Instagram-worthy. She’ll tell you what to expect when you’re expecting and the good, the bad and the poopy.”
