Inspired by the true story of Florence Greenberg, the woman who in the late 1950's took the male-dominated music industry by storm, the musical is conceived by Floyd Mutrux, directed by Mutrux and Sheldon Epps, and written by Mutrux and Colin Escott.
Greenberg's daughter, Mary Jane, first saw the four singers that her mother would make into the Shirelles at a talent show in the auditorium of Passaic High School, and in honor of that historic event the Baby It's You! cast will be performing numbers from the Broadway musical that chronicles the meteoric rise of the legendary girl group. The benefit will also feature a performance by the Passaic High School Band and a special Q&A with the cast of Baby It's You!.
Baby It's You! stars 2011 Tony Award nominee Beth Leavel, Allan Louis, Geno Henderson, Erica Ash, Kelli Barrett, Kyra Da Costa, Erica Dorfler, Jahi A. Kearse, Barry Pearl, Christina Sajous, Crystal Starr, and Brandon Uranowitz.
Tickets are $20 at the door and 100% of the proceeds will benefit a performing arts scholarship fund for a deserving Passaic High School Student.
