MONROE - After hundreds of sell-out performances on the North American tour and an award-winning run in Branson, Missouri, one of the hottest stage shows in America rolls into town at 7:30 p.m. March 12 when Monroe Arts Center presents the musical theater sensation, "A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline." The show traces the late star's footsteps from her early honky-tonk days and radio fame through her rise at the Grand Ole Opry and triumphs at Carnegie Hall and Las Vegas. Written and conceived by Dean Regan, the musical reveals the emotional depth and range of a singer who defined the term "crossover hit" by dominating country, blues, pop and gospel charts simultaneously in the 1950s and early 1960s.
