Read the press release for PREGNANT PAUSE on Broadway World.

A New York actress has to decide between giving birth to a baby with a serious genetic
disorder or starring in her first Broadway show (Opening Night is her due date).
Long: Although Essie has mixed feelings about being pregnant — she’s a successful New
York actress with a happy marriage — she warms to the idea, until she learns the baby has a
genetic disorder. Haunted by her past, Essie examines her life’s work, worth, and the future
of her family. Pregnant Pause premiered at United Solo Theatre Festival in 2016.
