Nicole Cassesso and Dee Shandera are back for their third and final turn as Patsy Cline and Louise Seger in this critically acclaimed production.

Always...Patsy Cline is based on the true story of Patsy Cline's friendship with Houston housewife Louise Seger. Having first heard Cline on the "Arthur Godfrey Show" in 1957, Seger became an immediate and avid fan. A chance meeting at Patsy’s concert started a friendship that lasted until Cline's untimely death in a plane crash in 1963.

Over a pot of strong coffee, the two women spent the night chatting about their common concerns about life and family. Though they exchanged addresses, Seger never imagined their relationship would continue. Yet she received the first of many letters and phone calls from Cline shortly after. Their pen-pal correspondence provides much of the dialogue for the show.

Seger supplies the narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing her famous tunes, including Anytime, Walkin' After Midnight, I Fall To Pieces, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy; all backed by a live country band.

The show combines humor, sadness and reality. It offers fans who remember Cline 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.

“Cassesso absolutely commands the stage, capturing the heart and soul of the legendary singer, showing her consummate ability to stir deep emotions within her listeners.” – Eric Marchese, OC Register

“The combination of Cassesso's illustrious voice and Shandera's down-home Texas twang is a revelation under the splendid direction of Damien Lorton...” – Tom Titus, LA Times

“Whether country music fan or not, “Always, Patsy Cline” has something for everyone, and may just give you a new appreciation for a true American idol.” – Thom deMartino, OC Tribune
