This production reunites Struthers and Calvert as they have previously performed “Always…Patsy Cline” together at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine, and the Algonquin Arts Theatre in New Jersey.

This wonderful, country/western, toe-tapping musical is based on the life and music of country legend Patsy Cline (Carter Calvert) and a Texas housewife, Louise Seger (Sally Struthers), who struck up a friendship after meeting Cline and remained friends until Cline’s untimely death at age 30 in a 1963 plane accident. The shows title was inspired by Cline’s letters to Seger which were consistently signed Love Always…Patsy Cline.
