JOHN STAMOS SAYS HELLO TO BROADWAY!

Popular television actor John Stamos comes to the Henry Miller’s Theatre for a limited run in the 1960’s classic musical Bye Bye Birdie. The show is scheduled to start previews on September 10, 2009 with an official start date of October 15, 2009. The production is being presented by the Roundhouse Theatre Company and is listed to light up the stage for a four month run. The show’s debut will mark the inauguration of the newly renovated theater.

This entertaining production was based loosely on the real life draft of Elvis Presley. It’s set in 1960 and tells the story of the popular, up and coming rock star Conrad Birdie who has been drafted into the army. To gain as much publicity as possible from the star’s unfortunate new status, the draft occurred at the height of his career; his manager and his secretary come up with a stunt to send him off with a bang. He’s scheduled to perform a new song and give one lucky teenage fan a kiss on the Ed Sullivan Show.

The show features music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Lee Adams and a book by Michael Stewart. In the role of Albert is well known television actor John Stamos. He is probably best known for his eight season stint on the popular nineties sitcom Full House where he played Uncle Jesse. He has also starred in ER, Jake in Progress and Thieves. His Broadway credits include noted roles in Nine, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Cabaret. He has also had success in television films including The Two Mr. Kissels, Wedding Wars and A Raisin in the Sun. The production also stars Gina Gershon and Nolan Gerard.

Bye Bye Birdie originally opened at the Martin Beck Theatre in April 1960 and went on to win the Tony Award for Best Musical. It played 607 performances before closing in October of 1961. A film adaptation was released in 1963 and starred original Broadway cast member Dick Van Dyke in the role of Albert along with Janet Leigh, Ann-Margaret, Paul Lynde and Maureen Stapleton. The film was nominated for two Academy Awards that year. The production has enjoyed several revivals, a West End run and is often a popular choice for high school and college productions.

The musical brings with it a rich and colorful Broadway history. When one thinks of a classic, Broadway musical Bye, Bye Birdie is often at the top of the list. This is a fun and energetic play that features a talented cast and a memorable score. If you get the chance check this one out, but don’t wait too long as it is on a limited run and is scheduled to close on January 10, 2010.
