When the new national tour of Buddy...The Buddy Holly Story kicks off at Boston's Shubert Theatre Dec. 7-19, theatregoers will be able to sample the tunes of Holly and his Crickets for $20. These rush tickets, located in the first two rows of the orchestra, will be available the day of performance at the box office only. Buddy, a retrospective on the 50s musician's life and work, opened for a brief run at Broadway's Shubert Theatre Nov. 4, 1990. Some of the original Holly numbers in the show include "Peggy Sue Got Married," "Maybe Baby," "That'll Be The Day," "Rave On," "Oh Boy" and "Words of Love," alongside "La Bamba" and "Chantilly Lace," performed in Holly's fateful last concert by Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.
Regular priced tickets ($68.50-$25) are available by calling Telecharge at (800) 447-7400.
