The Twin Cities outdoor musical theater season comes to a close this weekend with a quintessential show about adolescent angst.
Tony-winning "Bye Bye Birdie" is on stage through Sunday at Bloomington's Miller Park.
The show opened on Broadway in 1960, a time when teens didn't "hook up," they "went steady." They telephoned instead of texting.
Director Tricia Stiller says despite many changes in culture, some things don't disappear, including the longings and insecurities of adolescence, the struggle to fit in, and clashes between teens and their parents.
