Patsy Cline defined the term "crossover hit" by dominating the country, blues, pop and gospel charts of the 1950's and early 1960's. Featuring over 20 of Patsy's unforgettable hits, this toe tappin', foot stompin' tribute traces her career from the early days of singing in honky tonks, through her rise to fame at the Grand Ole Opry, to her triumph at Carnegie Hall. You'll love takin' this closer walk with the down-home girl who became a country music legend.
Lilly Lane Stafford takes on the title role of Patsy Cline. She is a recent graduate of the musical theatre program at UT-Austin. She returns to TexARTS having recently performed in "The Marvelous Wonderettes." Austin audiences will recognize her from role as "Jo March" in the recent UT production of "Little Women."
