Thank you Goldstar AND La Mirada Theater for making this possible. I got tickets at the last minute to take a friend for her birthday. Our seats were great and the show spectacular! It's hard to find musician's that are actors as well, so my hat...continued

Don't understand all the 4 star reviews. Buddy deserves much better. The musicians were top notch, but the story unfortunately was not. So, as a musical, the most this gets is two stars.

What a great way to see theater...rocking and rolling in your seats! Excellent cast of musicians who continued to amaze us with their tricky footwork and strong voices.

Description

On February 3, 1959, the legend known as Buddy Holly died unexpectedly in a tragic plane crash at the age of twenty-two. It was known forever after as “the day the music died.”

Now, Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story tells the incredible story of the three years in which Buddy Holly became the world’s top recording artist with a show that features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including “Peggy Sue,” “That’ll Be The Day,” “Oh Boy,” “Not Fade Away,” “Everyday,” “Rave On,” “Maybe Baby,” “Raining In My Heart,” Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba,” and the Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace.” Over 20 million people from around the globe have come to see Buddy and experienced the magical talents of the young man with glasses named Charles Hardin ‘Buddy’ Holly, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period in our history. Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story is a celebration of that legend and catches that unique mixture of innocence, determination, humor and charm that truly deserves the billing: “The World’s Most Successful Rock & Roll Musical.”
