Featured Reviews For Baby It's You!


Baby It's You! - Backstage
If your show is in trouble, be sure to get Beth Leavel in your cast...With subtle humor, expert timing, and knockout pipes, Leavel strives mightily to bring this mishmash of a rock tuner up to her level, but she can't perform miracles. There is an audience for this kind of show...but if you crave a well-written story with your nostalgic score, walk on by.

The Invisible Girls - Wall Street Journal
That's what is most irksome about "Baby It's You!": It's a wasted opportunity to tell what really happened when a nice Jewish housewife took four nice black Jersey girls and made them very, very famous. I'd happily pay to read a book in which that story was told honestly and well—but I wouldn't pay a dime to see a musical that doesn't even try to do so, no matter how slick it sounds.
