Baby Its You - Some Reviews are in after the opening
The article in the New York Times seems less negative, but the reviewer states "But mostly they bop around acting like blandly innocent Jersey Girls, generic teenagers getting ready for a sock hop, or even Mouseketeers."
Certainly the show will appeal to my oldies radio friends who grew up during the era when the Shirelles hit the charts. They key to its success will be whether it appeals to enthusiasts of other genres of music. Certainly, the Jersey Boys did that, but it remains to be seen whether Baby Its You can duplicate that feat.
I should also make my readers aware that Dionne Warwick and Shirelles are suing the producers for using their names and likenesses without permission.
