A musical inspired by the phenomenon of Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army ,with a book by Michael Stewart, lyrics by Lee Adams and music by Charles Strouse. Bye Bye Birdie won the Tony for Best Musical in 1961. Set in 1958, Conrad Birdie has been drafted to the army. As a farewell, the rock and roll star is scheduled to sing Albert Peterson's "One Last Kiss" and kiss a girl from Sweet Apple, Ohio live on the Ed Sullivan Show. However, Conrad's hip-thrusting makes more than one man in town uncomfortable, many of whom attempt to stop the show from happening. Meanwhile, Rosie wonders if Alfred, for whom she does everything, will ever leave his mother's shadow. Many memorable songs from the show include “How Lovely to be a Woman,” “Telephone Hour,” “Put On a Happy Face,” “One Last Kiss,” and “A Lot of Livin’ to Do.”
