Last night marked the first New York City revival of the musical in over 50 years with a cast featuring the talents of newcomers Nolan Gerard Funk and Allie Trimm along with Broadway veteran Bill Irwin and TV star John Stamos. Yes that's right, Full House's Uncle Jesse has officially made it to Broadway... Ready to celebrate, the Birdie cast took over the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square for a star-studded after party. With the revival meeting less than stellar reviews, a musical set in the 50s about an Elvis-inspired rock star and his teeny-bopper fans can't help but be a crowd pleaser.
