OPENING NIGHT! ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE
By Ted Swindley
In 1961, an unusual conversation began between the famed country singer Patsy Cline and one of her biggest fans, Louise Seger, a Houston housewife. Finding herself early at Cline’s concert, Seger surprisingly meets Cline and they strike up a coffee chat that lasts until Cline’s death in 1963. Always…Patsy Cline takes us on a musical journey of their serendipitous meeting, their genuine connection and their evolving relationship from fan worship to mutual friendship. The show provides a touching glimpse into the star’s life from the perspective of a true friend. Seger provides the narrative and Cline reappears to sing the tunes that made her famous – “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Sweet Dreams,” “I Fall To Pieces,” “Crazy” – and more!
Catch Always…Patsy Cline onstage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 14; Monday, July 16; Thursday, July 19; Friday, July 27; and Wednesday, August 15.
