Idol's Crystal to play Patsy Cline

Former American Idol contestant Crystal Bowersox is to star as Patsy Cline in musical Always... Patsy Cline this summer in New York.

Written in 1988 by Ted Swindley, Always... Patsy Cline is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death in 1963 in a plane crash at age 30.

Crystal, who was runner-up in season nine of American Idol to Lee DeWyze in 2010, had previously expressed interest in the project but producers have now officially confirmed her casting.

John Rando will direct the show which is due to preview in in July for an August opening. The theatre and exact dates haven't been announced.

The musical features 27 Cline hits, including Walkin' After Midnight, I Fall To Pieces, Crazy, She's Got You, Sweet Dreams, Back In Baby's Arms and Your Cheatin' Heart.

The name of the musical is borrowed from Cline's letters to the fan, Louise Seger, which she signed "Love Always... Patsy Cline." Oscar and Emmy nominee Annette O'Toole will play Seger.
