Before the Beatles or the Stones ever played a note, rock & roll was born and popular music was forever changed by the bespectacled kid from Lubbock, Texas - Buddy Holly. See the man, hear the music and relive the life of a legend! Get ready to rock as you watch Buddy backstage and at the recording studio. Follow his rise up the charts from his humble country music roots to his hits Not Fade Away, Peggy Sue, Words of Love, Oh Boy, Maybe Baby, Peggy Sue Got Married, Heartbeat, It Doesn't Matter Anymore, Rave On, Johnny B. and more.
Buddy 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.'
Seen by over 22 million people around the world, 'Buddy' will have you on your feet and 'send you out of the theater on an unstoppable high' (The Boston Globe).

Jared Mancuso is Buddy Holly
Born and raised in New Hope, Pa., Jared Mancuso has been a performer since he slept in a crib. He started taking tap lessons at 3 years old after being spotted dancing around to his sister's dance recital tapes. The rest is history.
Involved in music lessons, dance lessons, school plays and musicals, Jared has spent his whole life working at being the most well rounded performer he can be. He has earned his Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Performance with a Minor in Musical Theatre from Marymount Manhattan College, performed in countless musicals, has directed short films, done background work on several TV shows, worked in fashion commercials, has produced and recorded EP's for bands, including his own band, The Jared Project, and has released his own solo album, A Very Pleasant Person.
Recently, Jared has been paying tribute to the music of Buddy Holly, not only in different productions of The Buddy Holly Story, but in other tribute concert shows, including one of his own creation, Not Fade Away: The Ultimate Buddy Holly Tribute.
Additionally, Jared makes up one half of the aforementioned The Jared Project. The other half is his songwriting partner, Jared Bardugone. They released their debut album, The Battle Between Love and Fear, and it's follow-up The Battle: B-Sides. Their newest album, Songbook, was just released in the summer of 2015.
