Studio Tenn is kicking off the new year with a classic. They’ll bring Always… Patsy Cline, a tale of friendship, to the Factory at Franklin’s Jamison Theater from Feb. 8 to Feb. 24.
This production was created and originally directed by Ted Swindley. It quickly became a huge hit around the States and even appeared on stage at the Ryman!
We wanted to bring a production to audiences that we knew would resonate with them,” said Benji Kern, Studio Tenn’s Interim Artistic Director. “This show has such a rich history around the world and is the perfect combination of charm, humor
This production is based on true events and tells the story of the friendship between Cline and Louise Seger. In this show, Megan Murphy Chambers (pictured) will play Cline.
“I can’t wait to get started and step into the shoes of a woman I’ve admired since I first heard her records as a child,” she said. “I’ve been listening to her music constantly and hunting up televised performance footage from her all-too-brief career. She’s charming, inspiring and, of course, breathtakingly talented. She was a spitfire, a powerhouse and a trailblazer and absolutely someone I wish I could be friends with.”
Chambers will play opposite her real-life friend, Melodie Madden Adams, who stars in the role of Louise Seger.
“Melodie is brilliant, hilarious and generous on stage and the most supportive and fun woman in the world to boot,” Chambers gushed. Our audiences are going to fall in love with her completely.”
Always… Patsy Cline starts on Feb. 8 with shows through Feb. 24. Tickets and more information for the show is available here.
