Episode 23: Karma Is a Bitch

Just heard this through the grapevine over the weekend. Horror Show has been unable to get the rights to bring back to St. Louis A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline or to produce the other Cline tribute show, Always...Patsy Cline. It seems word has spread about the way Horror Show runs her little sandbox and no one dares to get involved with this woman.

So she decided to try a new approach...

The grapevine (and this one is usually pretty reliable) says Horror Show called Patsy Cline's husband and told him she was writing her own Patsy Cline show and needed the rights to all her songs. After all, Horror Show does write musicals (if you define "musicals" really loosely). Cline's husband asked if he could read Horror Show's script, but she refused, claiming that someone might steal it if she sent him a copy. Since she wouldn't let him see a script or tell him anything about her intentions, he refused to give her rights.
