Book by Michael Stewart, Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Lee Adams. Bye Bye Birdie is one of the most captivating musical shows of our time. It is a satire crafted with the fondest affection telling the story of a rock and roll singer [ a la Elvis Presley] who is about to be inducted into the army. “An English Teacher, What Did I Ever See In Him?, Put On A Happy Face, One Boy, A Lot Of Livin’ to Do, Kids, Rosie and Spanish Rose” are musical theatre classics. This is the tops in imagination and good old-fashioned fun!
