The reviews are in and the story of the Shirelles, Broadway musical "Baby, It's You", is no "Jersey Boys".
A pity because, as a huge Shirelles lover (I was front row for a reunion as part of a 1960s retrospect some ten years ago), I was seriously considering a viewing.
Doesn't matter because the producers are idiots. Apparently, they didn't bother to get releases from Dionne Warwick, Chuck Jackson or even the last Shirelle standing Beverly Lee and the estate of the late other Shirelles Doris Coley and Eddie Harris.
Really? What on earth were they thinking of? I don't know the letter of the law but I have a feeling you can't have people on stage, claiming to be Dionne, and singing "Walk On By"..
On another note, the song didn't even get the rights to "Dedicated To the One I Love" -one of the Shirelles biggest hits.
