The bird is the word
Bye Bye Birdie
If you've never seen a Music Circus production before, you really can't call yourself a Sacramentan. While being a Sacramento Kings fan can be a bummer during the team's losing seasons, which seem to never end, we have a plethora of talented stage performers coming to the area on a regular basis performing in award-winning musicals. Bye Bye Birdie made Dick Van Dyke a huge sensation and won a whopping four Tony awards. If songs like “A Lot of Livin' to Do” or “One Last Kiss” don't move you, perhaps “Put On A Happy Face” will do the trick. If not, perhaps you might want to get your head checked. If there ever was a summer tradition worth experiencing for the first time, this would be the golden ticket. Bye Bye Birdie; 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and 2 p.m. Thursday, Saturday and Sunday; $40-$83. Wells Fargo Pavilion, 1419 H Street; (916) 557-1999; www.californiamusicaltheatre.com. Tuesday, July 7 through Sunday, July 12.
