    Aretha Franklin Visits, Sings Along to BABY IT'S YOU! on Broadway

    July 13, 2011 -

    What a night for the cast of Broadway's Baby It's You! The one and only Queen of Soul, Miss Aretha Franklin, arrived a couple of minutes late at the Broadhurst Theater and had to wait--with her guests--at the top of the aisle until the first scene was over. Then Aretha and her gang of 8 (including boyfriend Willie Wilkerson and singer Fonzie Thornton) quickly took their seats in the fourth row, center, and settled in to enjoy the proceedings.


    "Beth Leavel, baby, it's you!"

    If you've ever listened to an oldies station (and what Latino hasn't?) you know that The Shirelles are the premier girl group of all time -- the first to have a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100. If you're a theater-goer (and if you're reading this article, you are!) you know that Tony-winning actress Beth Leavel is currently Broadway's reigning musical-comedy diva. Well, imagine what delights you get when you combine both of these delicious treats into a new musical titled after The Shirelle's greatest hit: Baby It's you!
