Bye-Bye Birdie remains as fresh and vibrant as ever – a loving musical send-up of the early 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted into the US Army, so he chooses all-American girl Kim McAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts, and a hilarious script – Bye Bye Birdie remains one of the most popular shows across the country.
