Coming Soon

Always Patsy Cline

The return of a hit!

After its record-breaking sold-out engagement in 2012, Rep favorite Kelley Faulkner (Guys and Dolls, Ragtime) will return to play the title character in Always… Patsy Cline. Learn More »

“Faulkner hits every note while singing more than two dozen songs doing justice to Cline's wide-ranging repertoire: honky-tonk and western swing; rockabilly and rock 'n' roll; two emotionally charged spirituals and Cole Porter's 'True Love,' which Faulkner renders with simple beauty.” - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
