The story was inspired by the phenomenon of popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the army in 1958. The original Broadway production was a Tony Award-winning success. It spawned a London production and several major revivals, a sequel, a 1963 film and a 1995 television production. Full of great songs and dances, Bye Bye Birdie is a must-see show this summer.
