Jasmine (Age 15) - ★★★★

"A fantastic night of good old rock and roll. This musical is amazing, featuring classic hits from Buddy Holly. The story follows Buddy until his tragic death at only 22 as he tries to rock his way to the stop0. With plenty of comedy this show will keep you enthralled from start to finish. The show itself was not what I was expecting, and I was pleasantly surprised. My favorite thing about it was the talent highlighted by the musicians/actors who could perform and play their instruments. Overall, this musical is one of my favorite ones I have been to and would highly recommend to everyone."
