Special to 1812Blockhouse
The Renaissance Theatre is excited to announce the latest streaming production of their new film division, Ren Studios. Heartaches: The Music of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn will premiere April 1 and be available for viewing through the end of that month.
These two legendary and unforgettable performers would go on to change the face of American music. Patsy Cline, with her plaintive, heartbreaking vocal style, set the charts ablaze with hits like Crazy, I Fall to Pieces and Walking After Midnight. Loretta Lynn, the coal miner’s daughter from Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, turned country music on its ear with heartfelt and sometimes controversial songs about marital infidelity, poverty, and birth control. Heartaches: The Music of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn is not a biographical portrait of two immortal entertainers, but rather a collection of their music that mirrors the struggle of all women.
Loretta once said, “I didn’t just write about my life, I wrote about what all women were going through.” And this is the story that Heartaches tells. Love, loss, betrayal, cheating husbands, raising children, loss of innocence, jealousy, the struggle to succeed in a man’s world, and the joy of family and friends. Two friends laugh, cry, commiserate, tell tall tales, crack each other up and share each other’s burdens – all set to the soundtrack of some of the greatest music ever written.
Starring Kelly Knowlton and Miss Ohio, Caroline Grace Williams, and written and directed by Renaissance Artistic Director Michael Thomas, the show includes such favorites as Crazy, You Ain’t Woman Enough to Take My Man, Faded Love, I Fall to Pieces, One’s on the Way, Sweet Dreams, Back in Baby’s Arms, Happy Birthday, She’s Got You, Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’, Lay Me Down, Fist City, Walking After Midnight, and more.
A production of the new Ren Studios division, Heartaches will stream from April 1st through April 30th. With costumes by Linda Turske, film direction by Ryan Shealy, cinematography by Ryan Shreve, Sound, lighting and technical direction by Aaron Nicolas, Production Supervisor/Assistant Sound Engineering by Nik Demers, and Production Management by Abe Swanger. Produced through an arrangement with BMI and ASCAP.
