Star John Stamos



On stands now!

John Stamos, star of the Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of BYE BYE BIRDIE, is featured in this week’s People Magazine. John Stamos talks to writer Mark Dagostino about his career and his return to Broadway in this classic musical. The magazine is on stands now. 

“The elastic John Stamos, a worthy successor to Dick Van Dyke.”
- John Simon, Bloomberg

“A riot of candy color and teenage hormones. The score is still catchy, with a bunch of tuneful songs.” -David Rooney, Variety 

This is the inaugural production of the new Henry Miller’s Theatre on Broadway.

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents the first new Broadway production of Bye Bye Birdie, after a 48 year absence, as the inaugural production of the new Henry Miller’s Theatre (124 West 43rd Street).  This is a limited engagement through April 25th, 2010.

Bye Bye Birdie stars John Stamos (Albert Peterson), Gina Gershon (Rose Alvarez) & Bill Irwin (Mr. Harry MacAfee) with Jayne Houdyshell (Mrs. Mae Peterson) & Dee Hoty (Mrs. MacAfee).  The cast will also feature Matt Doyle (Hugo Peabody), Jake Evan Schwencke (Randolph MacAfee), Allie Trimm (Kim MacAfee) and Nolan Gerard Funk as “Conrad Birdie.”  Robert Longbottom directs and choreographs Bye Bye Birdie with a book by Michael Stewart, music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Lee Adams.

In Bye Bye Birdie, the exuberant rock n’ roll musical comedy, it’s 1960 and hip-swingin’ teen idol superstar Conrad Birdie (Funk) has been drafted into the army.   Birdie's manager Albert (Stamos) and his secretary Rosie (Gershon) have cooked up a plan to send him off with a swell new song and one last kiss from a lucky teenage fan… on “The Ed Sullivan Show”!
