Singer Mandy Barnett will reprise her critically acclaimed turn as Patsy Cline, and theatre veteran Tere Myers will return in the role of Patsy's devoted fan, Louise Seger. Always . . . Patsy Cline is based on the true story of the friendship that developed between the two women, who corresponded until Patsy's death at age 30 in an airplane crash on March 5, 1963. The show takes its name from Patsy's signature on her letters to Louise. The production features more than 20 of Patsy's most memorable songs, including "I Fall to Pieces," "Crazy," "Blue Moon of Kentucky" and "Sweet Dreams," which became a hit shortly after her death. Mandy Barnett, who originated the role at the Ryman in 1994, has received rave reviews throughout the years for her recreations of Patsy Cline's unique and unforgettable sound. Tickets for the show are available by calling (615) 871-OPRY or visiting ryman.com.
