In Bye Bye Birdie, the exuberant rock n' roll musical comedy, it's 1960 and hip-swingin' teen idol superstar Conrad Birdie has been drafted into the army. Birdie's manager Albert (John Stamos) and his secretary Rosie (Gina Gershon) have cooked up a plan to send him off with a swell new song and one last kiss from a lucky teenage fan... on The Ed Sullivan Show!

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Bye Bye Birdie

    If you get a chance, send a few dozen get-well cards to Henry Miller’s Theater, the new, handsomely renovated outpost of the Roundabout Theater Company empire. Flu season has arrived, and an especially mean virus appears to have attacked the cast of the revival of “Bye Bye Birdie,” which opened Thursday night.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Bye Bye Birdie

    Alas, Broadway's new "Birdie" doesn't take flight. We're talking about the bumbling Roundabout Theatre Company revival of "Bye Bye Birdie," the first attraction at the reborn Henry Miller's Theatre. At least the new theatre, with its gently sloping orchestra section, has great sight lines.

  • AM NEW YORK REVIEW OF Bye Bye Birdie

    Full disclosure: I acted in no less than three productions of “Bye Bye Birdie” while growing up: at camp, in middle school, and yet again in high school. I know the show by heart – word for word, song for song. At that time, I can’t say that I thought too highly of the show. Why couldn’t we do something darker, or more substantial, or by Sondheim?

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Bye Bye Birdie

    Warmed-over apple pie and flat soda pop, anyone? That's the all-American snack being served in less-than-optimum form in "Bye Bye Birdie." The first Broadway revival of the 1960 musical ought to be a lot more fun. But Robert Longbottom's miscast, over-designed production rarely musters the energy or effervescence its riot of candy color and teenage hormones might suggest. The show retains its corny charms and a bunch of tuneful songs, which might be enough for undiscerning family audiences; others will struggle to identify much authentic flavor in its aggressive blandness.

  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW OF Bye Bye Birdie

    Bottom Line: This "Birdie" should say bye-bye. You can't say that the producers of the Broadway revival of "Bye Bye Birdie" didn't offer theatergoers bang for their buck at a recent preview. Besides the show proper, there was stand-up comedy by Bob Saget and sarcastic jibes thrown by Don Rickles from his seat in the audience.
