This production of Always stars Melodie Smith as Patsy and Susan O. Koozin as Louise Seger. Always is set in Houston and chronicles the friendship between the singer and Seger, who was Cline's devoted fan and close friend. The two women accidentally met during Cline's stop here and went on to exchange letters for the rest of Patsy's life. The show’s soundtrack features a total of 27 of Cline's hit songs, including ''Crazy,'' ''I Fall to Pieces,'' ''Sweet Dreams'' and ''Walking After Midnight.''
Stages Artistic Director Kenn McLaughlin says, ''Patsy endures because this story belongs to Houston. It is a wonderful window into the past, into our love of celebrity and into the pluck of Southern women.'' Of course, the long roster of some of the best country music songs ever also adds to the appeal.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: March 13. Continues through June 23, 2013
