Stroll Down Memory Lane with CityRep's A CLOSER WALK WITH PATSY CLINE
by Robert Barossi - Sep 16, 2017

There have been many great singers who left an indelible mark on the music industry and who created music that has stood the test of time long after their voices fell silent. Among them is an undeniable country music legend who changed the game in many ways and blazed a trail for numerous female country artists to follow, the incomparable Patsy Cline. Although her life and career were cut tragically short in 1963, Cline's music and voice are still instantly recognizable and her impact is still felt in the country music world even today. To open their season, CityRep is currently presenting a show that provides a window into The Life of the legendary singer and a chance to hear many of her most beloved songs, sung live on stage. While A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline does succeed in bringing to life those songs in quite spectacular fashion, the show as a whole is a mixed bag, an odd combination of disparate and at times frustrating elements that never really gel into a cohesive whole.
