We were amazed at the extensive work involved to make this Buddy Holly production. Excellent. The buffet food was just okay. Lots of gnats flying around salad bar and the variety was okay.

I have never been to a bad show at Dutch Apple, Pippin was excellent! Very energetic, even included the audience in a singing portion during the show. During intermission, actors interacted with the audience. Colorful, great singing and acting, good show!!
