Bye Bye Birdie
By Book By Michael Stewart, Music By Charles Strous, Lyrics By Lee Adams
Directed by Bryce Lord
One of the most captivating musical shows of our time, this Tony and Outer Critics Circle Award winner tells the story of Conrad Birdie, a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army. Conrad’s agent, Albert, and Albert's faithful secretary, Rose, concoct one final publicity stunt before the induction; he will bid a typical American teen-age girl goodbye with an all-American kiss. Kim MacAfee in Sweet Apple, Ohio wins the honor, and the arrival of Birdie in her quiet little town causes a major commotion. With classic songs like “The Telephone Hour,” “It’s Lovely To Be A Woman,” “Put on a Happy Face,” “A Lot of Livin' to Do,” and “Kids,” this is the tops in imagination and good old fashion fun.
