“All in all and in every way, as the author of the piece, I could not have been more pleased and excited to see such excellence on stage!" -Ted SwindleyCreator of Always...Patsy Cilne
Maryland Heights, MO (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
High demand already had Always...Patsy Cline extended to Labor Day, but its sensational results at the box-office have prompted yet another extension. The momentous production by STAGES St. Louis will run from September 18 through October 12 with five performances weekly, Thursday through Sunday.
“I’ve probably seen well over 100 performances of Always…Patsy Cline in its 26-year-history and the production at the STAGES St. Louis is definitely one of the best productions I’ve ever seen,” proclaimed Always…Patsy Cline creator Ted Swindley.
The show was first produced in Houston in 1988, and Swindley based the production off an interview with Texas housewife and avid Patsy Cline fan, Louise Seger. Always…Patsy Cline is a heartfelt show told through the hilarious memories of Louise Seger on the night when Louise hears of Patsy’s untimely passing at 30.
First produced during STAGES St. Louis’ 27th Season, Always…Patsy Cline resulted in added performances, historic attendance and thunderous applause for the numbers “Crazy,” “Lovesick Blues” and “Your Cheating Heart.” Original stars, Jacqueline Petroccia and Zoe Vonder Haar will return as Patsy Cline and Louise Seger respectively, and the Bodacious Bobcats will once again take the stage as the production’s band.
“The cast is superb,” Swindley exclaimed. “Patsy (Jacqueline Petroccia) is remarkable. She has every nuance and vocal quirk of Patsy Cline down pat. A beautiful performance – warm, full of life and heart breaking. And Louise (Zoe Vonder Haar) has that very rare quality of being so comfortable with an audience that she has them eating from the palm of her hand from her very first entrance. Hilarious and heartfelt, everything you would want in a friend as she is to Patsy.”
Audiences will be able to experience the box-office triumph starting September 18 at 8:00 p.m. at The Playhouse at Westport Plaza (635 Westport Plaza, Maryland Heights, MO 63146). Tickets are on sale now and start at just $49.
