NBC’s live ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ pushed to 2018

Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

NEW YORK — NBC is say­ing bye­bye this year to its tra­di­tion of an an­nual live hol­i­day mu­si­cal. The net­work con­firm­ing that “Bye Bye Birdie’’ has been pushed from its an­nounced De­cem­ber air­date into 2018. No new air­date was an­nounced.

The pro­duc­tion is still to star Jen­nifer Lopez in this homage to 1950s rock ‘n’ roll ma­nia. But Lopez is cur­rently jug­gling two se­ries on NBC — the new “World of Dance’’ com­pe­ti­tion and her po­lice drama, “Shades of Blue’’ — as well as other projects.
