Musical by Ted Swindley
"The one thing I wanted to do more than anything else was sing country music..."
This summer, Swine Palace is thrilled to bring a Baton Rouge favorite back to the Reilly Theatre. Step into your cowboy boots and prepare to take a trip down memory lane: the popular musical Always...Patsy Cline is back!
"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… Patsy Cline."
