Patrick on the Prairie!

Next month Patrick Swayze will be playing Pa in a workshop of Prairie, a new musical based on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s The Little House on the Prairie books. Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura in the LHOTP TV show, will join him as Ma. The workshop is closed to the public so those of you who need your Plains States fix will have to wait until 2008 when the show goes on a national tour prior to opening in New York. The show is geared toward a family audience so I don’t think Patrick will be pulling out any of his Dirty Dancing moves, or stripping down in the fields, but as you can see in this picture he can rock a pair of overalls and still look like his smooth self!
