Honky Tonk Blue: The Night Patsy Met Hank

It's the return of this hit musical, written a decade ago by Townships teacher and actor Laura Teasdale, who imagines what it might have been like had American country music icons Patsy Cline and Hank Williams sang together. While Patsy and Hank didn't meet in their short real lives, they now do on stage. Jacquie spoke with Laura -- who also channels Patsy, and Ralph Steiner, whose yodel resonates with the Hank Williams of sixty years ago. Honky Tonk Blue will tour a number of communities this summer.
