Honky Tonk Blue: The Night Patsy Met Hank | Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre

Fri, 2019-07-05 08:45

A mischievous musical that imagines a star-crossed meeting between Patsy Cline and country music’s broken king, Hank Williams. Patsy wants her chance in the spotlight, and Hank wants one last shot at redemption, and they find it in covering vintage songs as powerful as their two personalities. For Festival Antigonish fans who enjoyed last summer’s runaway hit Being Hank & Patsy, this is Laura and Ralph’s legendary play behind that play.

His intrusion is the catalyst for Morgan and Lilly to examine their lives, their regrets, and their relationship.

In this charming comedy, Ravi travels from Toronto to India, and his parents decide – purely by coincidence – to go at the same time. Unbeknownst to Ravi, their plan is to find him a suitable bride through an arranged marriage. Ravi is not ready, at least not yet, but his mom Asha fears that time is running out! Family meetings, betrayals, binders full of girls, and clash after cultural clash are revealed as Ravi and Asha tell their sides of this true story, each hoping to get you on their side.
