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 of Cline's and she constantly hounded the local
disc jockey to play Cline's records on the radio.
The relationship, which began as fan worship evolved into one of mutual respect. It is the kind of relationship that many fans would like to have with their heroes.
Over a pot of strong coffee, the two women chatted about their common concerns. When Cline finally left for Dallas, her next job, the two women had exchanged addresses and telephone numbers. Seger never expected to hear from Cline again, but soon after she left, Seger received the first of many letters and phone calls from Cline. The pen-pal relationship provides much of the plot of the show.
The play focuses on the fateful evening at Houston's Esquire Ballroom when Seger hears of Cline's death in a plane crash. Seger supplies a narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing tunes that made her famous--Anytime, Walkin' After Midnight, She's Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy--to name a few.
The show combines
humor, sadness and reality. It offers fans who remember Cline while she
was alive 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.
