Patsy Cline was a superstar country music singer back in the late 1950s and early 1960s and successfully made the crossover pop music. (Kind of like an earlier version of Taylor Swift?) Her life ended prematurely in 1963 when she died in a plane crash at only 30 years of age. The musical play – Always, Patsy Cline – is not only filled with some of her most beloved music, it also lets you get to see who Patsy was as a person and all that she went through. We start off this podcast episode with a short a capella musical teaser by Cori Cable Kidder who plays Patsy in this production and then a discussion with Cori and the other lead actress, Ann Myers, about the show and the unique aspects of performing it in this theater. Today we’ll get to hear about:
- The friendship that developed between Patsy and Louise and why it was something special.
- What Cori and Ann learned from playing their roles as Patsy and Louise.
- How this rendition of Always, Patsy Cline gets the audience more involved in the performance than other renditions do.
- The show itself – you’ll get a great overall feel for what you’ll see to help you decide about going to see it.
- Why Cori and Ann are perfect for this show and how they each bring something amazing to every performance.
- What the remaining shows are in this year’s season at the Glendale Centre Theatre.
