Experience the true story of Buddy Holly, a 19-year-old kid from Texas who made music history.
Buddy! The Buddy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy Holly’s meteoric rise to fame, from the moment in 1957 when That’ll Be The Day hit the airwaves until his tragic death less than two years later on “the day the music died.” The show features over 20 of Buddy Holly’s greatest hits including Peggy Sue, Everyday, Oh Boy, Not Fade Away, and Raining In My Heart, plus Ritchie Valens’ La Bamba and the Big Bopper’s Chantilly Lace.
Buddy’s all-too-brief career is immortalized in this musical memoir that culminates in his final performance at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa, before his tragic and untimely death on February 3, 1959 when he was tragically killed at the age of 22. The original productions of Buddy! took home a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award, two Outer Circle Awards and two Laurence Olivier Awards.
What happens when an average guy wakes up to discover that his life has become a musical?
Howard Barnes is a typical emotionally repressed, musical-hating man in his early thirties, until the day that he wakes up to discover that his life has become a musical. Desperate to escape from the “show,” Howard sets out on a quest to escape, guided by his aspiring-actor co-worker/awkward-love-interest Maggie. Together they embark on a wacky, mind-bending, emotional journey through the world of musical theatre, as Howard learns to embrace the music in his everyday life.
Equal parts satire, romantic comedy, and love letter to the American musical, The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes is intended for people who love musical theater, and maybe even for people who hate it. Pithy and clever, delightful and a little zanny, this show will make you laugh out loud while hitting close to home.
A scheming producer and his mousy accountant aim to produce the biggest flop on Broadway in Mel Brooks’ laugh-out-loud spectacle.
Max Bialystock, the one-time king of Broadway producer – hungry to strike it rich, and Leo Bloom, an accountant with dreams of someday becoming a theatre producer, discover that they could make more money by producing a flop than a hit. They set out to find the worst show, the worst director, and the worst actors. When their new production, Springtime for Hitler, turns out to be a smash success, the plan is thrown off and the partners lives are thrown into chaos.
The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly “boffo” hit, winning a record 12 Tony Awards, 12 Drama Desk Awards, and seven Laurence Olivier Awards. With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”
