This heartfelt, toe-tapping tribute to musical legend Patsy Cline was a sold-out hit off-Broadway and has become one of the most-produced musicals in the U.S. Based on an endearing true story, Always ... Patsy Cline recounts the real-life relationship between Cline and her number one fan, Louise Seger, who befriended the country music legend in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her untimely death. Combining down-home country humor, true emotion, and even some audience participation, Always ... Patsy Cline features renditions of over two dozen of Patsy?s unforgettable hits, such as ?Crazy,? ?Walkin? After Midnight,? ?Sweet Dreams? and ?I Fall to Pieces.? Musical clearances secured and used by permission. Any taping, filming, recording, or broadcast of this play (musical or otherwise) is strictly prohibited.
