Broadway musical about the Elvis phenomenon
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 20, 2022
This musical use to be on TV all the time when I was a kid so I wanted to check it out again to see if it was still any good. The movie is about an Elvis type character named Birdie coming to a small town where Anne Margaret lives. Like any Broadway show there’s songs and dancing. Two songs that always stood out are Bye Bye Birdie and Put On A Happy Face that lived on in commercials after the movie.
It's nostalgic to watch but I doubt many people who were not from that era or who didn’t like show tunes would like it.
