In the Saturday Spotlight, we’re hearing a musical the old-fashioned way. Lyric Stage’s production of Bye Bye Birdie features a 31-piece orchestra playing the original Broadway orchestrations. It’s only the second time the original orchestration has been performed since the show was on Broadway. Click here to listen to an interview with Birdie composer Charles Strouse.
