“Always … Patsy Cline” Is Ted Swindley’s Valentine to the Country-Music Legend and Her Number-One Fan
“Always … Patsy Cline” is dramatist and director Ted Swindley’s 1997 Off-Broadway hit about the unusual friendship between Winchester, VA-born Country-Music-Hall-of-Famer Patsy Cline (1932-63) and her number-one fan, Houston, TX housewife and divorcee Louise Seger (1932-2004).
Broadway Series South, in conjunction with City Stage of Wilmington, will present five performances of the outrageously offbeat 1973 British musical-turned-cult film, “The Rocky Horror Show,” with music, lyrics, and book by Richard O’Brien, on Oct. 28-31 in Raleigh Memorial Auditorium in the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh. The stage musical premiered on June 19, 1973 in the 60-seat Royal Court Theatre Upstairs in London, later transferred to the Chelsea Classic Cinema and other locations, and racked up 2,960 performances in London by 1980.
