With digital camera in hand, Da Costa snapped everything from wakeup to post-show autographs and everything in between.
Enjoy a day at Baby It's You! with Kyra Da Costa and company:
Da Costa has previously appeared on Broadway in Sweet Charity and Aida. Other credits include Golden Boy at Encores and the 2001 Actors Fund performance of Dreamgirls. Visit www.kyradacosta.com.
Here's how the show is characterized by the producers: "Before Motown and the British Invasion, Florence Greenberg took the male-dominated music industry by storm, revolutionizing pop music and becoming the most influential and successful female record company president ever. After discovering one of the greatest girl-groups of all time, The Shirelles, at her daughter's high school, Greenberg packed the girls in her car, drove across the George Washington Bridge to New York City, and embarked on a trailblazing journey from New Jersey housewife to record mogul, creating the independent house of hits that was Scepter Records."
Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone) plays Greenberg, a rare female blossom in the male-dominated record industry of the 1950s and '60s, in the musical conceived by Floyd Mutrux, directed by Mutrux and Sheldon Epps, and written by Tony Award-nominated book writers Mutrux and Colin Escott (Million Dollar Quartet).

Kearse, Annette Moore, Zachary Prince, Ken Robinson and Chelsea Morgan Stock.
