The New York City Center presents a reading of the short-lived 1966 musical comedy by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams (Bye Bye Birdie), as part of its Encores! series. Note that this is not a full performance, so there will be no sets, costumes, or wire-harness flying scenes like there were in the original. The play itself, though, is a great piece of sixties camp, and the original cast album is available on CD from Amazon and elsewhere. Ticket prices vary depending on date, time, and section.
