Discover why “It’s So Easy” to fall in love with Buddy Holly.

The life and career of an artistic pioneer are celebrated in this spirited musical biography which chronicles his triumphs and tragedies, from humble beginnings singing country music in small-town Texas to his rise up the record charts and into the hearts of music fans around the world.

This thrilling tribute explodes into full-throttled joy through renditions of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits – classics like “Peggy Sue,” “That’ll Be The Day,” “Not Fade Away,” “Rave On,” and many more.  The music lives on, as this musical celebration will have you bopping in the aisles and singing your way out of the theatre.

Audience Recommendation: Recommended for ages 10 and up. There is no official rating system for live theatre. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child's age and maturity level.
