RING OF FIRE: THE MUSIC OF JOHNNY CASH

Created by RICHARD MALTBY, JR.
Conceived by WILLIAM MEADE

From the iconic songbook of Johnny Cash comes this unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, home and family. The show features 38 classic hits – including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune – performed by a multi-talented cast of ten, and paints a musical portrait of The Man in Black that is a foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ salute to a uniquely American legend! Johnny Cash’s remarkable life story is told through his music, climaxing in a concert that will both move and exhilarate!

Approximate running time is 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission.
