Lyric Stage presents A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline
Lyric Stage presents Dean Regan's A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline. North Texas favorite Julie Johnson returns to Lyric Stage to star as country music legend Patsy Cline in this musical sanctioned by the Patsy Cline Estate.
In the early 1960s, Patsy Cline's life began settling down just as her career began to pick up. Two children, a dream home, and a stack of hit records were finally hers, but she would not be able to enjoy them long. Cline died in an airplane crash March 5, 1963, while hurrying back to her family after a benefit concert in Kansas City.
Cline's music popularity is witnessed by the fact that she is the number one jukebox play in the world. Her "Greatest Hits" album has been in first place for over 200 weeks on Billboard's "Top Country Catalogue Albums." On March 1, 1995, Cline was memorialized with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Although she will never be replaced A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline is a tribute to her spirit and a celebration of the music of her life.
