Always...Patsy Cline at the Lyric Theatre
Date: September 21, 2018
Always…Patsy Cline is based on the true story of Patsy Cline’s friendship with Houston housewife Louise Seger. The pen-pal relationship provides much of the plot of the show. The play focuses on the fateful evening at Houston’s Esquire Ballroom when Seger hears of Cline’s death in a plane crash. Seger supplies a narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing tunes that made her famous-Anytime, Walkin’ After Midnight, She’s Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy-to name a few. The show combines humor, sadness and reality. It offers fans who remember Cline while she was alive a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what seeing her was like and what she meant to her original fans.
