Originally posted 03/26/2013 12:50PM

Former American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox will officially be taking a walk after midnight – on Broadway.

Producers of the Patsy Cline musical Always... Patsy Cline said Tuesday that Bowersox, 25, will portray the legendary country singer in the title role of a summer production in New York. John Rando will direct.

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.
