After hundreds of sell-out performances on the North American tour and an award-winning run in Branson, Missouri, one of the hottest stage shows in America rolls into town as the Paramount Arts Center presents the musical theatre sensation, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline. The show traces the late star’s footsteps from her early honky-tonk days and radio fame through her rise at the Grand Ole Opry and triumphs at Carnegie Hall and Las Vegas. Written and conceived by Dean Regan, the musical reveals the emotional depth and range of a singer who defined the term “crossover hit” by dominating country, blues, pop and gospel charts simultaneously in the 1950s and early 1960s. The show won the Best New Show Award when it premiered in Branson, Missouri in 1995 and enjoyed universal praise during its inaugural 36-city North American tour. A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline features a powerhouse singer and actress who sings twenty-two of Patsy’s greatest hits including Walkin’ After Midnight, Sweet Dreams, I Fall to Pieces, Crazy, She’s Got You, Seven Lonely Days and the title song, Just a Closer Walk with Thee. Backed up by a band of singers and musicians, Patsy interacts throughout the show with Little Big Man, a disc jockey from her hometown in Winchester, Virginia, as well as a host of outrageous stand-up comics that serve as warm-up acts for her concerts and radio shows.
