Our review of Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story

 

The Roxy Regional TheatreThe Roxy Regional Theatre is now showing Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story. I attended the opening nights show and here is my review of the production.

I walked into the theatre and was immediately transported through time to the late 1950’s by this incredible Amber Wallace set.

This show covers Buddy Holly’s life from his rise to success in 1957 to his death in the 1959 plane crash which also took the lives of Rock and Roll legends Ritchie Valens and J. P.
