Bye Bye Birdie is closing on January 24. So, I guess, um, Bye Bye, Birdie. Now, I never wish for a show to fail, but...no well, I kinda wanted this one to fail. I'll admit it. It should have been SIDE SHOW, damn it. At the very least, a seasoned vet should have gotten Albert. But it's going going GONE! Much love and luck to the cast. I'm truly sorry that everyone involved with the show is losing their job. Really, I am. But to the show itself I say die, vampire die.
Knocking Birdie out of the box puts Ragtime one step closer to that Best Revival Tony. Come on, folks. You can hang on until then. I also have something very awful and childish to admit: When I scooted over to Broadwayworld and saw the headline that announced Birdie's demise, I shouted something to the effect of, "OHO! SUCK ON THAT, JOHN STAMOS!"
