Tom Frey (2 Pianos/4 Hands) directs and co-stars as Little Big Man in the 1991 biographical musical by Dean Reagan that runs through April 17 at the Back Bay Events Center. A Closer Walk is described as "a tribute to Miss Cline's spirit and a celebration of the music of her life. The story follows Patsy Cline's climb to stardom from her hometown in Virginia to the Grand Ole Opry, Las Vegas, and Carnegie Hall. Audiences will fall in love with Patsy all over again, laugh with the comedy of Little Big, the DJ who plays Patsy's biggest fan, and rock to the tunes of the stellar band."
The musical offers highlights from Cline's career, including "Walkin' After Midnight," "Sweet Dreams" and "Crazy."
