Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story
Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story hurls audiences ears-first into the brief, enigmatic life of the iconic Texan who forever changed the sound of pop music and the size of fashionable bifocals. Focusing on the last three, meteoric years of Holly’s career, Buddy’s jukebox jumps with more than 20 showstoppers such as “That’ll Be the Day” and “Peggy Sue.” Ritchie Valens’s “La Bamba” and The Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace” also ring out to remind waiting handkerchiefs of “the day the music died.” Fans of music and musical theater alike will rejoice in Buddy’s melodious jaunt down memory lane, and audiences unacquainted with Holly may be surprised how much they enjoy music that was recorded in black and white.<p>
When Broadway showman Walter Hartwig and his wife Maude opened the Ogunquit Playhouse in 1933, they likely never realized they were establishing a theatrical legacy. Then again, they might have had an inkling—from the very beginning, the playhouse hosted performances from luminaries including Ethel Barrymore, Bette Davis, and Walter Matthau. Even today it’s not unusual to see famous names and attached talents treading its historic boards, such as Stefanie Powers from Hart to Hart or Charles Shaughnessy from The Nanny. It’s all part of the theater’s mission to provide the best shows possible while promoting the local arts. Along with star-studded Broadway musicals, the stage hosts dance shows, children’s theater, and acting workshops for the next generation of spotlight-stealers.
