Robert Longbottom to direct and choreograph the first Bye Bye Birdie Revival since the orginal production, dates, theatres and casting will be announced later.

I just read this in the newspaper but I haven't checked online for any other news on it yet.

Pretty sure we will be seeing Stephanie J. Block as Rose Alvarez. I think I read in an interview that she says she's basically contracted to be on Broadway for the next two years. From 9 to 5 to BBB.

Not sure, though. Things could change.

I just hope it sticks to the original productions magic and talent.

They should woo Steve Carrell for Mr. McAffee. He's the only one I think can do it justice.

I'd love to see Vanessa Williams as Rosie.

I loved Vanessa in the role in the tv film..but alas shes a bit too old for the role now.

I really disliked Vanessa Williams in the TV Movie. However I absolutely LOVE the idea of Steve Carell as Mr. McAfee. I doubt it would happen, though.

Steve Carell would be a great Mr. MacAfee, but it's highly unlikely. :(

Apparently Matt Doyle will be playing Hugo Peabody..seems kind of odd since Hugo is not a singing role. But I'm sure he would do a good job with it.

I wonder who they are going to get for Conrad and Kim...

Why now? I don't see this going over big.

War, a recession verging on depression...

In times like this you're see a lot of revivals of classic, feel-good shows like this.

Oh. My Gosh.
Steve Carrell would be PERFECT as Mr. MacAfee.
Ha I'll bet they have Patti LuPone play Mrs. Petersen.
It would be AMAZING to get Angela Lansbury for that part, though, even though she's getting on up there in years...

Ehm...I think I'd pass on a Bye Bye Birdie revival.

Just sayin'.
