Spectacular! star and J-14 InTune performer Nolan Gerard Funk is hitting the Great White Way and playing heartthrob Conrad Birdie in the Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie! (Psst! The show also stars John Stamos -- yes Uncle Jesse from Full House!)
Last week J-14 was lucky enough to go to BBB's rehearsal studio in NYC to see a sneak peek of what's in store! We saw the cast perform four songs: "The Telephone Hour," "Put On A Happy Face," "Spanish Rose," and "A Lot Of Livin' To Do" -- and we were totally blown away! We even got to sit next to the Tony Award-winning composer of the musical, Charles Strouse. How cool is that?!
Afterwards we got to hang with Nolan and chat about the show. He even dished to us his most embarrassing moment so far --Â and of course, we got it all on video for you guys!
Previews for Bye Bye Birdie start on September 10 and opening night is October 14. Click here for more info and how to buy tickets! You know we'll be there front and center!
