Based on the true story of legendary country singer Patsy Cline's friendship with a devoted fan from Houston, this acclaimed musical is both a tribute to the legendary country singer and a testament to the power of friendship. Inspired by Patsy's letters to her friend, Always... Patsy Cline is filled with down-home humor, true emotion and the story of a relationship any fan would dream of sharing with their idol. It also includes many of Cline's unforgettable hits such as "Crazy," "I Fall to Pieces," "Sweet Dreams" and "Walkin' After Midnight." First staged in Houston in 1988, this two-character show is one of the most produced plays in America. Learn More

This is the Mingus Big Band. A 14 piece Jazz band that pay homage to the phenomanal composer and Base player. The performance captured the diversity of Mingus'es compositions; everything from bebop, to straight ahead renditions of Good by Pork Pie Hat(in honor of Lester Young, to a piece I had never heard before, The Children's hour of prayer. which could have been written to compliment Bernsteins west side story. Every musician is virtuoso and every musician had a great imporovizational solo. The evening was totally psychotic.
