BUDDY – THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY
by Alan Janes
original London production directed by Rob Bettinson
In just three short years, Buddy Holly set the music world on fire and forever changed the face and sound of rock and roll. “Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story”, the musical that charts his meteoric climb, legendary adventures and tragic fall on the fateful day the music died, kicks off OnStage Playhouse’s 2016-17 season of shows.
Armed with an electric guitar, his signature specs and a charismatic blend of rockabilly swagger, Buddy explodes onto the stage in this jukebox musical fully loaded with classics “Peggy Sue”, “Oh Boy!”, “That’ll Be the Day”, “Not Fade Away” and many more with an encore that will have you on your feet and dancing.
