Bye, Bye Birdie – The Plot

Bye, Bye Birdie is a musical released in 1963. When super-star Birdie is drafted into the army to fight in Vietnam, there is an outcry from the nation’s teenage girls. Rosie, assistant and fiancée to Albert, a struggling song writer, decides to capitalise on this situation by convincing the Ed Sullivan show to air Birdie’s goodbye performance. Albert would make commission from the event by writing the song One Last Kiss, and Birdie would kiss a fan at the end, a girl to symbolise all of his female fans. The fan chosen for this role is Kim McAfee from a small town called Sweet Apple, Ohio. Kim’s boyfriend, Hugo, is not happy about this. Hijinks and hilarity ensue when these two worlds collide.
