A theatrical tribute to the legendary country and pop icon, Patsy Cline, as seen through the eyes & heart of a local radio disc jockey in Patsy's hometown of Winchester, Virginia. A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline features a score of Patsy's greatest hits like, "Crazy," "Walkin After Midnight," and "I Fall to Pieces." The show also features backup vocals crooned by The Jordanaires.

Playhouse on the Square Executive Producer, Michael Detroit (Les Misérables, Ragtime) heads up the revival production as director, having also directed the Playhouse on the Square production in 2012. Haley Wilson (Smokey Joe's Café, Days of Rage) is the newest member of Playhouse on the Square's Resident Company and will lead the cast of this production as Patsy Cline. "I'm so excited to be playing Patsy Cline," says Wilson. "Her [Cline's] music means so much to me. My Grandma used to sing her version of Love Sick Blues and yodel to me to get me out of the bed." Wilson credits her cast as the reason patrons will enjoy the show. "Working with the cast has been amazing. They are so talented and hard-working." A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline marks Haley's fourth jukebox musical during her time at Playhouse on the Square.

Memphis theatre favorite, John Hemphill (Memphis, Guys and Dolls), will play multiple roles, including stand-up comedian Cousin Melvin.
