Jennifer Lopez is starring in NBC’s ‘Bye Bye Birdie Live’!

Posted by Sidney, 30 Oct 16

After the huge success of ‘Grease Live’, it comes as no surprise to learn that NBC is going to broadcast yet another live musical.

The good news is that it’s going to be ‘Bye Bye Birdie’, and perhaps the greatest news of all is that it’s going to star and be produced by none other than Jennifer Lopez.

She will star as Rosie Alvarez in the role that Chita Rivera made famous on Broadway, and was also performed spectacularly by both Janet Leigh and Vanessa Williams in the two film versions of the musical. We have every faith that J-Lo will make the role her own and really shine…

“Broadway musicals and films fueled my childhood and ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ was one of my favorites," Jennifer Lopez said in a statement. "I'm proud to be a part of the NBC family with ‘Shades of Blue’ and I thought it would be a blast to take on one of their big live musicals."

While we wait for ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ to hit our screens in December 2017 (yes, quite a long wait sadly), we will have ‘Hairpsray Live’ to tide us over, as that airs on Wednesday December 7th this year. It’s going to be a star-studded affair, with the likes of Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Kristin Chenoweth, Sean Hayes, and Rosie O’Donnell in the line-up.

Talk about Christmas coming early!
