  1. New theater group stages jukebox musical at ShermanRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Aug 10 | Pocono Record

    Ask younger music fans to name a Buddy Holly song, and some may cite Weezer's 1994 track “Buddy Holly” rather than the rock pioneer's own music, which includes classics “That'll Be the Day,” “Peggy Sue” and “Oh Boy.” Emerald Masks Productions, a new theater company based in Stroudsburg, hopes to increase awareness of the icon when it presents Alan Janes' “Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story,” opening Friday at the Sherman Theater. “Buddy,” which premiered in London in 1989 and on Broadway the following year, chronicles the career of the man born Charles Hardin Holley in Lubbock, Texas.
