March 19-20; (repeats March 26-27)…."Always...Patsy Cline" - More than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963, the show is based on a true story about Cline’s (Terri Caldwell) friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger (Jane Prince-Jones), who befriended the star in a Texas honky tonk in l961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. The musical play, complete with down home humor, true emotion and audience participation, includes Patsy's unforgettable hits "Crazy", "I Fall to Pieces", "Sweet Dreams" and "Walkin' After Midnight"…27 songs in all! The show’s title was inspired by Cline's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS... Patsy Cline.” Featuring Terri Caldwell and Jane Prince-Jones. Tickets: $25. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave; 7:30 p.m.


March 19-21….“The Complete History Of America (Abridged)” - "During the manic, ninety-minute program...[they] mine dozens of landmark events and trends for comic gold. Not only do they know how to give American history an irreverent boost, they actually turn it into something accessible and alive." - Pamela Sommers, The Washington Post. The Complete History of America interprets the past as a breathlessly paced sequence of silly vaudeville sketches, word-association games, puns and crude parodies of movie and television genres. Nothing is sacred, and many of the facts have been skewed to suggest the paranoid ravings of a particularly loony tabloid...." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times. "In a series of sketches that move at breakneck speed, the Reduced Shakespeare Company scampers through American history ...this history of America should be a required course." - Terry Byrne, The Boston Herald. Written by Adam Long, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor and directed by Kevin Ten Eyck . Rating: Comedy PG-13. Lubbock Community Theatre (formerly Boston Avenue Playhouse), 4232 Boston Avenue; Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m.; Sunday 2 p.m.
