SWEET DREAMS - A TRIBUTE TO PATSY CLINE


FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 2019  8:00 PM

Presented by:  Blackrose Entertainment

Leisa Way, starring in Sweet Dreams: A Tribute To Patsy Cline, is a powerhouse of a singer and entertainer. Although a tiny person, Way dominates the stage at Upper Canada Playhouse, filling every corner of the theatre with her rich, vibrant voice. And if ever an actor could be said to be "channelling" the late, much loved Patsy Cline, then that actor is unquestionably Way.

Backed by a four man band of outstanding musicians, artists in their own right, Leisa Way delivered classic Cline numbers like Crazy, The Tennessee Waltz and Walkin' After Midnight that had Saturday's capacity crowd cheering.

Leisa Way performs over 25 of Patsy Cline's hits in the course of her Tribute. She also shares stories and anecdotes about the artist which constantly remind one that Cline's death, in 1963, in a plane crash, was not just a tragic loss to her fans but to the entire music world. Cline, as Way makes clear, cut across musical barriers. She was at home with songs once describes as "hillbilly music" and equally at home in a number like Shake, Rattle and Roll which became a 60's rock and roll standard.

Recommended Age:  14+
Age Restriction:  7+

Sweet Dreams: A Tribute to Patsy Cline is a beautifully staged production. However, it was the diminutive Leisa Way who gave Saturday's show it's soul. Completely at ease with her back-up musicians, able to charm the audience as much with her personality as her extraordinary voice, Way brought the spirit and the music of Patsy Cline to life for all of us.

I think Patsy Cline would have loved this particular tribute to her songs and her memory. Like she once said, "I don't want to live rich in life. I just want to live good".
