Sally Struthers Wins Us Over in Always..Patsy Cline at The Bucks County Playhouse

Sally Struthers Wins Us Over in Always..Patsy Cline at The Bucks County Playhouse

Bucks County Playhouse’s current hit show Always..Patsy Cline is playing through September 7, 2019. The show stars Sally Struthers with Carter Calvert.

Based on a true-story, Always..Patsy Cline is a showcase of  27 songs including “Crazy,” “I Fall to Pieces” and many more Patsy Cline hits.

After hearing Cline (Calvert) on the radio in 1957, housewife Louise Seger (Struthers), became an immediate, avid fan. A chance meeting at a concert brought them face to face. Over a pot of coffee, and through their subsequent letters, they forged a bond that would last until Cline’s tragic death in 1963.

This a tour de force for Ms Struthers, who uses all her comedic skills to portray a Texan housewife, who will do anything to meet and befriend her idol. At times she breaks the theater’s fourth wall and interacts with the audience. At one point she invites a gentleman up to the stage to join her in a dance to a Patsy Cline melody. Struthers was last seen at Bucks County Playhouse in Clue”.

Carter Calvert is a master at channeling Patsy Cline’s voice, but she rarely has any dialogue. I would have liked to have seen more interactions between the two characters. I felt like I barely got to know about this terrific singer’s life and I wanted to her more about her in her own voice.

The show is cleverly directed by David Galligan. The orchestra on stage takes the role of the band that backs Patsy Cline at a local venue in Texas. the band members are John Daniels (piano), Roger Cohen(drums), Shane Aaserud )Bass, Tom Goslin (Electric/Nylon Guitar) and Jay Ansill (Fiddle/Acoustic Guitar).

It was wonderful to hear the great Patsy Cline’s hits and spend the day in New Hope. The Bucks County Playhouse has opened a restaurant The Deck adjacent to the theater. The food is innovated and delicious with excellent service.
