Still Sweet Dreamin'

Always...Patsy Cline

Courtesy of the Cell Theatre

The melifluous sounds of her voice, the enchanting rhythms embedded within her sweet refrains, these were melodies that I heard time and time again as a youngster when running through my grandmother's living room. Patsy Cline held a special place in my family's heart, as I'm sure she does with most American families, and households beyond the borders of this nation. Her sound was pure; it was heaven. And you can relive those particular notes if you head to Always...Patsy Cline, the celebrated musical play written by Ted Swindley, which is currently showing at the Cell Theatre (700 First Street NW). Based on a true story that followed Cline's friendship and correspondence with a fan before her death in 1963, the play includes many of her famous tunes, including “I Fall to Pieces,” “Walking After Midnight” and “Crazy.” Catch the show during its last weekend on Friday, July 31, and Saturday, Aug. 1, at 7:30pm or Sunday, Aug. 2, at 2pm. Tickets cost $20. For more info go to Cell Theatre • Fri Jul 31 • 7:30pm • $20 • View on Alibi calendar
