THEATER EVENTS:

 

May 15 to 24-(Extended to May 24)Always….Patsy Cline-Heartfelt Revue Features a Wealth of Hit SongsThe Wick Theatre is delighted to present Always…Patsy Cline, based on the true story of legendary country artist Patsy Cline’s friendship with Houston housewife, Louise Seger. “This show is a tribute to a lasting friendship that melds Patsy Cline’s trailblazing poignant songs with a life of humor, sadness and reality,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer.  Louise Seger met her idol in 1961, when Cline went to Houston for a show. Louis arrived early and, by coincidence, met Cline who was traveling alone. They immediately struck up a friendship and over a pot of strong coffee, the women chatted about their common concerns. When Cline left for Dallas, Louise never expected to hear from her idol again. But, a pen-pal relationship followed and provides much of the show’s plot. The play focuses on the fateful evening in 1963 at Houston’s Esquire Ballroom when Louis hears of Cline’s death in a plane crash. Louis 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. This brilliant show offers fans a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what experiencing Patsy Cline was like and what she meant to her original fans. Performances are Thurs, Fri, Sat Evenings at 7:30 p.m.; and Wed, Thurs, Sat, Sun Matinees at 2:00 p.m. The Wick production extended through May 24, 2019. Tickets are $75-$85, www.TheWick.org or call the box office at 561-995-2333.
