Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...One thing to be said about the jukebox musical "Buddy" is that it tends to understand that the audience came through the doors to hear Buddy Holly's music, not scripted blather. So even though it tries our patience with a flabby, truncated retelling of Holly's life story, it knows enough to shut up at the ends of both acts and give way to re-creations of key concerts in Holly's career."

Backstage - Recommended

"...Buddy Holly and the Crickets (Matt Wolpe on drums and Omar D. Brancato on bass) seemed to find success fairly easily, so the book doesn't dwell too much on the biographical but instead showcases Holly's musical progression. On the singing side are T.J. Dawson as the Big Bopper and Manuel Romero as Valens; Maegan McConnell, Arthur L. Ross, and Jennifer Leigh Warren provide solos and backup. Andy Taylor fills in well as Hipockets Duncan, Holly's first manager-D.J., and the cast does double and triple duty as the parade of characters who intersect Holly's life. The production boasts an outstanding troupe of instrumentalists."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...There is no one too old to enjoy Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story, and no one too young to be enraptured with the timeless music of this much lamented legend. Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story is marvelous entertainment for anyone who’s got the music in them, that’s just about everybody, right?"

Steven Stanley - Highly Recommended

"...At the center of all this is Buddy Himself played by Brandon Albright who has mastered the singing style and guitar playing of the original. He is supported by a wonderful group of musicians/actor including T.J. Dawson as the Big Bopper, Manuel Romero doing a remarkable and sexy Richie Valens, Brent Schindele as his producer (and he plays a mean piano, Jennifer Leigh Warren as a singer at the Apollo Theatre in New York, Christina Mantzke who nearly steals the show with her piano playing and rendition of the National Anthem, and the Crickets who back Holly up (Matt Wolpe and the hilarious Omar D. Brancato) are terrific."
