Rave On 

When he died in an Iowa plane crash in 1959, 22-year-old Buddy Holly had only reached the top of the Billboard music charts once, with "That’ll Be the Day." But he did so as the first rock & roller to sing, write and produce his own songs. Holly’s pioneering influence has extended through the decades to the likes of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt, Elvis Costello -- and of course Don McLean, who immortalized Holly’s death in "American Pie," as "the day the music died." Now "Peggy Sue," "Maybe Baby," "It’s So Easy" and all the other Holly classics are alive again in Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, which is rocking through August 31 at the Lyceum Theatre (114 High Street, Arrow Rock; 660-837-3311). Tickets are $34.50. Visit www.lyceumtheatre.org for more information.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 22. Continues through Aug. 31, 2012
