John Stamos, Gina Gershon Set For 'Bye Bye Birdie'



    Hello "Bye Bye Birdie."

    John Stamos and Gina Gershon will star in the first Broadway revival of "Bye Bye Birdie."

    Roundabout Theatre Company artistic director Todd Haimes says "Birdie" will open this fall at one of its theaters. The 1960 musical concerns an Elvis Presley-like rock 'n' roll star named Conrad Birdie who is being drafted into the Army and the effect his departure has on the teenagers in a small Ohio town.

    Stamos will play the star's manager, Albert Peterson, and Gershon will portray the manager's long-suffering secretary.
