About

Directed by MARCIA MILGROM DODGE

Experience the sensational musical about the bespectacled, 1950s rock and roll icon. This non-stop entertaining rock show recounts Buddy Holly’s 18-month, meteoric rise to fame and the indelible impact he left on the industry after his untimely death at the age of 22. Influencing artists from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen and plenty of musicians in between, the early rocker is immortalized in this mesmerizing musical memoir. Performances include over 20 of his greatest hits like “That’ll Be the Day,” “It’s So Easy to Fall in Love” and “Peggy Sue,” along with Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” and The Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace.”

“The never-ending stream of hits keeps the audience tapping their toes for hours.” — D.C. Metro Theater Arts
“High-octane and infectious … A gem of a musical.” — Daily Express


ADVISORY:
Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story is recommended for ages 12 and up. Buddy’s thick-framed glasses may seem nerdy and innocent today, but his songs about teenage romance, lust and heartbreak were edgy for their time period. Lyrics contain mild sexual innuendo, and there are other mature themes.
