Director's Notes

Life is just too darn fast. It moves by at such a breakneck speed. I turned 51 in May and it seems like just yesterday I was 9 years old, sitting in the back seat of my dad’s big brown Buick with my little sister, traveling down the road on the way to some new adventure. My dad was the type to stop at every historical marker or roadside attraction. We’d gather around and read the plaques as a family and learn about...stuff. My sis and I voiced more than our share of complaints about his need to stop and see and read about everything, but we would both give anything we own to be able to spend that time together again. It was just so easy, and time ticked by so slowly, so perfectly. Our accompaniment track for these stop-and-go-road-trips was an endless playlist of country western music from John Denver to the Sons of the Pioneers (Cooooool, Cleeeeeear, Waterrrrr). While us kids would much rather have been listening to ABBA or The Bee Gees, my dad strictly controlled all audio stimulus. The tunes my father loved became part of our DNA. They remain stubbornly fixed in my heart — forever foundational, forever loved.

Patsy Cline’s music is part of that American Songbook. She gave us clear melodies and simple harmonies, honestly and flawlessly delivered, to communicate sadness or love or joy. It’s a lost art, but it’s one we are going to bring back to you tonight. Yet this show really isn’t about her music. It’s about friendship and family and about capturing that perfect moment in time, all done through her music. Come back in time with us. Let’s slow down the clock and read a plaque or two. Because life is just too darn fast.
