Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story
The Buddy Holly Story Live On Stage 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.
Count Basie Theatre
Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
