Bye Bye Birdie (Broadway, Al Hirschfeld Theatre, 1960) | Playbill

Bye Bye Birdie



A loving send-up of the 1950s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, Bye Bye Birdie remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss.

Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, featuring well known songs like "Got a Lot of Living To Do", "Put on a Happy Face", "Kids", and more, Bye Bye Birdie is a loving poke at family values and the never-ending generation gap.
