About this show

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 and his secretary Rosie 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! Bye Bye Birdie received the 1961 Tony Award for Best Musical and features such beloved songs as "Put On a Happy Face," "Kids," "Spanish Rose," "The Telephone Hour," and "A Lot of Livin' to Do."
