Bye Bye Birdie is a favorite of the Broadway musical theater stage with book by Michael Stewart, lyrics by Lee Adams, and music by Charles Strouse.

Originally titled Let’s Go Steady, this satire on American society is set in 1958. The story was inspired by the phenomenon of popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the army in 1957. The rock star character’s name, “Conrad Birdie,” is word play on the name of Conway Twitty, who is remembered today mainly as a country music star but was one of Presley’s rock ‘n’ roll rivals in the late 1950s. The original Broadway production was a Tony Award-winning success. The show also became a popular choice for high school and college productions. (courtesy Wikipedia)
