I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Spoiler alert: If you are completely unfamiliar with Buddy Holly and his story and you want to see the show or watch the movie and be surprised you might not want to read further. However, if are at all, familiar with Buddy Holly, we do not mention anything in our review that you would not already know.

Our view: Buddy the Buddy Holly Story is a jukebox musical about the tragically short life of early rock pioneer, Buddy Holly. While much of the show plays like a concert, there is actually a story to the show.  The show is mostly upbeat and lively, particularly the musical sequences, although not always happy. The last third or so is completely heartwrenching just knowing how it is all going to turn out. The current production of the show by the Rev Theatre Co. is a delight.  Alec Michael Ryan does a terrific job of inhabiting the spirit of Buddy Holly. The music as played by the cast is great. All in all, it is a very enjoyable production.

And that's our view. 

Tune in Sunday for this week's Sunday Scoop.
