Buddy Holly’ at Muny
Next Week July 12- 19
I’ve been waiting for the ‘Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story’ musical to be play in St. Louis for some time. When I read that the new musical was on the Muny scheduled I was thrilled and then curious to see how they when handle the Texas singer, his outstanding rock-a-billy band and their music. Then I wondering how the show would handle his tragic death along with two other stars and the “day the music died.” -Bob Lindsey ••••
This week’s Muny production of Irving Berlin’s “Holiday Inn” is the newest show this season, but its 1940s settings and songs make it seem very old. It’s a compilation of the best parts of the movie, “Holiday Inn,” and highlights from other Berlin musicals, such as “Call Me Madam” and “Miss Liberty.”
