ALWAYS... PATSY CLINE:

Back by popular demand, this revival of our 2017 hit production brings you two of Jewel’s most beloved actors who pay tribute to an incredible performer in a true story about Patsy Cline’s friendship with hilarious Houston housewife Louise Seger who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk. The two women struck up a friendship that lasted until Cline’s untimely death in a plane crash. What started as fan worship evolved into mutual respect between two women with common concerns in life, family and love. Filled with laughter and song, ALWAYS… PATSY CLINE will celebrate “sweet dreams” come true for Jewel reaching 20 years as well as for Patsy and those who loved her music.
