We've all heard of The Shirelles (Twist and Shout, Sixteen Candles, It's My Party...hello?!?). But have you ever heard of the woman who made them stars?
Baby It's You, a new Broadway musical, tells the story of Florence Greenberg, a suburban housewife from New Jersey, and how she came to change the face of music, discovering the original girl group and creating an influential record label. It stars Tony-award winning actress Beth Leavel as Greenberg and promises to pop with familiar toe-tapping tunes. I'm sure the costumes will be spectacular as well.
Now in previews, Baby It's You opens April 27th, but the show is holding a clever ticket giveaway contest on Facebook. All you have to do is post a picture of yourself in your favorite shades (the more retro the better) for a chance to win tickets. All you awesome readers should enter and tell your friends!
I also noticed that if you sign up for the newsletter on the show's homepage, you will also be entered to win tickets. So why not double your chances? Best of luck! I hope one of my readers wins!
