Always… Patsy Cline
Created and originally directed by Ted Swindley – based on a true story
“I can’t point to a single thing in this production that
you’ll find lacking, except maybe you might be wanting
one more song at evening’s end. And that is a fine way
to leave the theatre.” A2View
Considered one of the leading female vocal performers of our time and one
of the most iconic country singers, Patsy Cline was taken away from us too
quickly. Always… Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country
singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963 aged 30. The show is based
on a true story about Cline’s friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise
Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961, and continued
a correspondence with Cline until her death.
The musical play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and
even some audience participation, includes 27 of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such
as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight. The show’s
title was inspired by Cline’s letters to Seger, which were consistently signed
“Love always… Patsy Cline.”
Ultimately, Always… Patsy Cline concerns dreams and persistence.
It’s a useful reminder that, no matter how successful we may be, we
all need a friend sometimes.
Always… Patsy Cline will be performed Cabaret Style in the
Bicentennial Hall next door to The Q
