Always...Patsy Cline Broadway
Always... Patsy Cline is a fun loving, crowd-pleasing musical full of down-home country humor and a big heart. Based on a true story, the show features nearly thirty classic songs from the Patsy Cline songbook which will be heard for the first time on a Broadway stage. The show tells of the friendship that developed between Patsy and Louise Seger, her most devoted fan. Louise narrates the story of the day in 1961 when she met Patsy at Houston's Esquire Ballroom. Afterward, Patsy kept in touch by writing her long hand-written letters until the day she died tragically in a plane crash. She signed the letters "(Love) Always, Patsy Cline."
2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Patsy Cline's death.
The show features twenty-seven chart-topping songs, including such Patsy classics as "Crazy," "Walkin' After Midnight," "I Fall to Pieces," "Sweet Dreams," and "Back In Baby's Arms." It also features such great Country classics as "Your Cheatin' Heart," "San Antonio Rose," and "Blue Moon of Kentucky," Pop classics like "Bill Bailey," "You Belong To Me," "True Love," and Rock 'n Roll classics like "Shake, Rattle and Roll" and "Stupid Cupid."
The center-piece of the show is Patsy's live concert at the Esquire Ballroom - a rollicking, dancing-in-the-aisles performance that shows a seldom-seen side of Patsy at her crowd-pleasing best.
