has had a remarkable journey from Broadway to theaters across the world. This ‘song showcase’ features a cast of six actor/musicians who share the remarkable story of Johnny Cash through his own medium of self expression: his music. From the opening chords of vintage Country to Rockabilly, Rock n’ Roll, searing ballads, gentle songs of love and deep faith, Ring of Fire packs a score that provides a rich fabric in which to lay down the story of Johnny Cash. I Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, Waiting on the Far Bank of Jordan, I’ve Been Everywhere, Big River, The Old Rugged Cross, Man in Black, Going to Memphis, Jackson…and more! Five shows only!
“What this production does, is it lets Johnny Cash’s music tell the story of his life. There is minimal dialogue, however, unlike a traditional review or concert, this production allows the audience to experience of the ups and downs of this legendary, yet deeply troubled artist. The songs tell the story.”
