Just three years -- that's how long it took for rocker Buddy Holly to change music history forever. A hit Broadway musical, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story follows Holly's childhood in Texas, his musical beginnings with a group of high-school friends who later gained fame as The Crickets, his meteoric rise to fame, and his tragic early death -- all set to a soundtrack of some of rock 'n' roll's biggest hits. One of the first "jukebox musicals," the show features "That'll Be the Day," "Not Fade Away," "Peggy Sue" and "Oh, Boy!" among other timeless early rock tunes. Learn More
