ALWAYS, PATSY CLINE Returns To The Media Theatre This Month

ALWAYS, PATSY CLINE Returns To The Media Theatre This MonthAfter a successful run this past summer, "Always, Patsy Cline" returns to The Media Theatre March 15 to April 1. Featuring Broadway's Jenny Lee Stern as the legendary country singer, the hit show has performances on Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm.

"Always...Patsy Cline" has enjoyed great success all over the United States, including a successful run off-Broadway. It has been one of the most produced musicals in America according to American Theatre Magazine. "Always...Patsy Cline" has also been enjoyed internationally by audiences in Canada, the UK and Australia.

"Always...Patsy Cline" is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. 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 many of Patsy' unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight...27 songs in all. The show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS... PatsyCline."

Jenny Lee Stern is a Bucks County native and Broadway veteran. She was seen on Broadway in Rocky (Original Broadway Cast) and A Christmas Story (Madison Square Garden). She toured the country as "Mary Delgado" in Jersey Boys, originating the role in the Chicago and Toronto companies.
