Musicals have always brought impossible dreams to life on stage, from cats that can talk to humans who can sing in public without feeling weird. Escape from reality with this GrouponLive deal to see Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story at Randolph Theatre. For $49, you get two tickets for general admission (up to a $98 value, including all fees). Choose one of the 20 performances listed here; presented by the Lower Ossington Theatre.
The Tony Award–winning tunes of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story echo through Randolph Theatre during 20 performances offered in the spring. Buddy 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 years of Holly's career, in which his fame skyrocketed, _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” are also performed to remind waiting handkerchiefs that Don McLean's sense of propriety wasn't the only casualty of “the day the music died.” Fans of music and musical theater 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.
