Ring of Fire was created by Tony Award winner Richard Maltby, Jr. (Fosse, Ain't Misbehavin', Baby, Miss Saigon) and conceived by William Meade. Directed by Richard Maltby, Jr., Ring of Fire features musical direction by Jeff Lisenby and choreography by Lisa Shriver.
"From the songs and stories of a true legend, comes a theatrical and musical experience that will lift your heart and stir your soul," according to the producers. "Ring of Fire is a journey into the heart and heartland of America, courtesy of one of our most beloved musical poets — Johnny Cash."
In it, "a remarkable cast of performers and musicians take us on a rousing adventure of love and faith, hard work and struggle, misadventure and success — all with the strength, humor and downright honesty that made Johnny Cash one of the greatest songwriters and most revered storytellers in American music. Ring of Fire brings to life through the words and music, the stories made famous in Johnny Cash's songs."
The show features 38 of the music legend's songs such as "Country Boy," "A Thing Called Love," "Five Feet High and Rising," "Daddy Sang Bass," "Ring of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "I've Been Everywhere," "The Man in Black," and his final hit, "Hurt."
The cast includes Jeb Brown, Jason Edwards, Tony Award winner Jarrod Emick (Damn Yankees), Beth Malone, Cass Morgan (Beauty and the Beast, Pump Boys and Dinettes), two-time Grammy Award winner Lari White, David M. Lutken, Randy Redd, Eric Anthony, Laurie Canaan, Dan Immel, Ron Krasinski, Jeff Lisenby and Brent Moyer.
The design team includes Neil Patel (scenic production designer), David C. Woolard (costume design), Ken Billington (lighting design), Peter Fitzgerald & Carl Casella (sound design) and Michael Clark (projection design).
Ring of Fire will play Tuesday- Saturday at 8 PM and matinees on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM. There will be added performances on Sunday Feb. 12 and 19 at 7 PM. Please note, there will not be a matinee on Wednesday Feb. 8 and 15 or Sunday March 12.
A new motion picture, "Walk the Line," telling the story of Cash, is currently in movie theatres. It stars Joaquin Phoenix as Cash and Reese Witherspoon as his wife June Carter.
