“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. This two-woman 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 1961, 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’s 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…Patsy Cline.”
June 25 & 26 at 7:30 p.m.; June 27 at 3:00 p.m.
Frank Sinatra’s story is told through the combined range of four virtuoso vocalists, performing the best of his songs. This celebration of “Ol’ Blue Eyes” features Jeremy Benton and Jennifer Johns, both recently seen at the Wilson Center in Uptown at the Cotton Club; they are joined by David Schoonover and Linda Mosier.
With music including “Fly Me to the Moon,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “New York, New York” and—of course—“My Way,” you’ll be swinging in your seats at this fresh new Broadway revue.
July 9 & 10 at 7:30 p.m.; July 11 at 3:00 p.m.
