APRIL 27 — MAY 26, 2018

BUDDY – The Buddy Holly Story

CHICAGO REVIVAL

Written by: Alan Janes
Directed by: Lili-Anne Brown
Music directed by: Michael Mahler*

Before the Beatles or the Rolling Stones ever played a note, rock & roll was forever changed by the bespectacled kid from Texas. Buddy tells the true story of Buddy Holly through his short – yet spectacular – career and features the classic songs “That’ll be the Day”, “Peggy Sue”, and the Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace”, Richie Valens’s “La Bamba”, plus many more. To learn more, read our Artistic Director’s note and Backstage Guide.
