Bud, Not Buddy
A World Premiere Kennedy Center Commission
It’s 1936 in Flint, Michigan, and ten-year-old Bud Caldwell is sure of two things: he wants to find his father, and his name is Bud, not Buddy. Despite challenges including the Great Depression, racism, and the uncertainty of not having a family or home, he sets off on an epic journey of discovery, set to the soulful sounds of jazz.
