THEATER & ARTS

FRIDAY, JUNE 11

“Always…Patsy Cline.” Based on a true story about the legendary country singer’s unlikely friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, this musical play comes with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation. Audiences will revel in 19 of Patsy’s heartfelt songs including unforgettable hits such as “Crazy,” and “Walking After Midnight.” Cherry Hill Park (312 Park Ave., Falls Church). 7 p.m. $35. creativecauldron.org.

VIRTUAL (ON DEMAND)

Midnight at The Never Get (online). Welcome to The Never Get nightclub for this smart and slyly subversive Off-Broadway smash-hit musical. If life is a rehearsal for your memory, what moment would you replay? It is 1965 in New York City and cabaret crooner Trevor is in love — with Arthur, his songwriter. With their romance outlawed, the two create an act in the back room of an illegal Greenwich Village gay bar. However, pressures from a world on the cusp of change expose an ache for what they could never have in a wistful and whimsical serenade with tunes reminiscent of the Great American Songbook. Signature Theater. $35. Tickets at sigtheatre.org.
