Always Patsy Cline


By Kate Lochte

Murray, KY – Folks in Benton County, Tennessee, remember when singer Patsy Cline's plane crashed and the singer perished in the neck of the woods. Murray's Playhouse in the Park features the music of Patsy Cline, in the context of a Houston housewife's actual remembrance of getting to know Cline personally. Bolen cast Becky Watts as the story teller, the main character. Watts, who in real life serves as Deputy to the President of Murray State University is new to Playhouse, but not to this part.
