A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline

created by Dean Regan

Farmers Alley kicks off its third season with the works of one of the most beloved female singers of all time. Following the legendary Patsy Cline's rise to stardom from her hometown in Virginia to The Grand Ole Opry, Las Vegas and Carnegie Hall, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline is a wonderful blend of theatre and music that audiences of all ages will enjoy. Starring Lana Hawkins, the popularity of Patsy's music is witnessed by the fact that she is the number on juke-box play in the world. Twenty of her best-known songs, including "Crazy", "Walkin' After Midnight" and "I Fall to Pieces", make this show a treat for the young and old alike.
