Zenbaby Theatre is a lively, experimental theatre company that explores women's issues through comedy. The company's mission is to have an avenue for new plays and unique artistic discovery through theatrical improvisation, dance, and newly developed music. The founding members encourage emerging talent to contact the company to create devised work in a collaborative environment. Many of the company's performances have been based on improvisation, influenced by Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, Christopher Durang, Kids in the Hall, Little Britain, and the Upright Citizen's Brigade.  Lauren Cavanaugh, Artistic Director, wrote and associate produced "Nunchuck Ninja Nuns" produced at the 13th Street Repertory Company.

Zenbaby Theatre Company is pleased to announce the world premiere of two new plays “Lovers & Thieves” by Sem Megson, and “Matty & The Airplane”, by Lauren Cavanaugh. Produced by Phil Newsom and Lauren Cavanaugh. Performances will be held June 5 – 21 at the Roy Arias’ Payan Theatre (300 West 43rd Street, NY, NY). This is the company’s second production of the season, coming quick off the heels of their successful comedy “Land of the Babydolls” by Kristine Hipps and Lauren Cavanaugh.

Production History

Land Of The Babydolls  | Open: 02/19/09 Close: 02/22/09
Zenbaby Theatre Company presents their New York premiere of “Land of the Babydolls” by Kristine Hipps and Lauren Cavanaugh. Show dates are February 19- 22, 2009 at Nicu’s Spoon Theater. Produced by Phil Newsom, and directed by Lauren Cavanaugh. This silly 60's comedy is a twisted tale of a girl, Lana, who leaves the comfort of her Vermont home to find herself in the big city of New York. She meets many talented people, including Stevie O’Mara, a bright starlet with a big downfall of drug use. Lana also meets Tiger, the sexy agent who gets her motor running. The characters go on a wild ride driven by greed, drugs, and a quest for fame, and a few of them get there, but with a price. Sound familiar? Yes, it may be a parody loosely based off of a famous trashy novel by Jacqueline Susann.

With: Sergio Arroyo, Amber Bogdewiecz, Michael Connell, Mark Epperson, Krsnaa Fitch, Julie Gragert, Belinda Hodler, Gina Labozetta, Amanda Marasch, David Montgomery, Katie Nelson-Croner, Phil Newsom, and Marcel Torres.

Lovers & Thieves  | Open: 06/05/09 Close: 06/21/09
In “Lovers & Thieves” there’s a thief of hearts, and the heart of a thief, but which one is which? Shelly and Kaden are a married couple and owners of a match making business, yet they can barely keep their relationship together. Renata and May- May, a pair of thieves burst into their lives, turning their business upside down. Unwittingly, Kaden’s lovable nerdy client, Barton gets caught in the middle. The play confronts our current ultra-technological society, and how it affects relationships. As Renata explains, “The fetish of our time is Googling our lovers”.

“Matty and the Airplane” is about a young child’s imaginary world that shields him from the vulnerability of his newly broken family. This short play is a fast paced, quirky drama-comedy that will keep you wanting more.

"Lovers and Thieves"- Starring: Mark Epperson, Cynthia Osuji, Lindsey Johnston, Phil Newsom, Jessica Sherr. Swing: Jenny Paul.

“Matty & The Airplane” -Starring: Jesse R. Tendler, Leah Young and Roger Crane.
