Buddy, Buddy

Well, the Buddy Holly Story opened on Friday.

All is well in Buddy Hollyland. There was a small amount of friction the day before we had our first audience but it was resolved. I am not the kind of person that believes that offstage drama helps the final product. Or in a slightly revised version...

"Leave the drama on the stage."

The audiences have responded well to the show. Standing ovations and dancing in the aisles. Quite an acheivement when you realize that it is being shown at the Welk Resort. I say this because the audiences at the Welk are "of a certain age." So they heard the music the first time it came around.

Actually, it isn't that much of an acheivement. Its funny to watch the teenage grandkids forcebly trying to keep their grandparents from rocking out in the aisles.
