What Is the Story of Rated P For Parenthood?
Dubbed as a “sketch comedy musical,” Rated P For Parenthood is a collection of short scenes and songs about parenting. Beginning with the birth of a child and ending when a teen goes off to college, the production is a collage of child-rearing milestones, from the touching to the humorous to the downright embarrassing. An ensemble cast of four plays a variety of parents, children, and even elderly grandparents, switching characters and costumes at the speed of light in this high-energy production.

Review by Anita Gates from The New York Times
