Always... Patsy Cline
Presented by Swine Palace

Always… Patsy Cline is based on a true story about Patsy 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. This musical features many of Cline's greatest hits, and continues to be a powerful draw for audiences of all ages today!
