When most young 'uns think of ol' Patsy Cline, their minds no doubt turn to her hit song "Crazy," and maybe then to a weak karaoke rendition that a friend drunkenly unleashed upon the world. Of course, Nashville's fair lady was so much more than that song -- she was a mother, a beloved performer and a dear friend. To learn more about this star who died much too soon and to revel in her songs, head to the Robert G. Reim Theatre at the Kirkwood Civic Center (111 South Geyer Road) for Stages St. Louis' production of Always...Patsy Cline. In this play, Patsy's story is told through the memories of her friend Louise, and plenty of familiar tunes help guide the tale. Always...Patsy Cline is presented every day except Monday, from Friday, May 31, to Sunday, June 30; times vary. For more information and to purchase tickets, which cost $20 to $55, call 314-821-2407 or visit www.stagesstlouis.org.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: May 31. Continues through June 30, 2013
