**** Highly Recommended **** Of all the jukebox musicals out there, I think “Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story” might just be my favorite. It’s like going to a rock concert with a story thrown in and I start dancing in my seat as soon as I hear the first song. Buddy Holly’s music is still alive – and still rocking – in the fabulous new American Blues Theater production. Don’t miss this one! 4 BIG Spotlights
