Not Fade Away: A Review of Casa Mañana’s The Buddy Holly Story
By: Julie Rhodes
“And the rest…will just be rock and roll.” This is the last line of the show in Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, now playing at Casa Mañana. It could also apply to almost the entirety of Act II, which is an unapologetic homage to Buddy’s greatest hits. Casa’s Buddy is a satisfying portrayal of one of rock’s founding legends, a young man who held unswervingly to his vision and died too soon, but not before bequeathing us with the likes of “Peggy Sue” and “That’ll Be the Day.”
