Now at the Pasadena Playhouse: “Baby It’s You,” a musical about the groundbreaking girl group, The Shirelles, and the woman who discovered them. She was Florence Greenberg, a New Jersey housewife who went on to build her own independent music empire in Scepter Records company.
Show ends Dec. 13. Schedule and tickets.
Here’s what the critics are saying:
“A promising new musical that still has problems in the book but knows how to entertain.”
Los Angeles Times, Culture Monster:
“Attractively staged, ‘Baby It’s You!’ works best as a nostalgic spectacle for aging boomers. It’s a shame that the dramatic craft is so weak …”
“‘Baby It’s You’ has the legs to potentially make a successful trip to the Big Apple once it achieves a more symbiotic balance between music and storyline. The onstage talent is certainly in place.”
