Ring of Fire is Richard Maltby Jr.’s homage to the music and spirit of Johnny Cash. Fresh from a recent Broadway run, Ring of Fire has it all—the drama of his memorable life and career told by a cast of talented singers/musicians and more than 40 of his great hits including “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Jackson” and, of course, “Ring of Fire” (written by his wife/collaborator June Carter Cash).
Fireside Theatre artistic director Ed Flesch explains: “This is a musical revue without a traditional plot, and while you won’t see someone on the stage portraying Johnny Cash, there are elements of his life that shine through his music to which we can all relate. Ring of Fire is a broad-strokes sampling of the American experience—and the faith, family, roots, travel, home and relationships that come with that experience. It’s about the really basic family values.”
Flesch will direct eight New York and regional singer/musicians in this inspiring and uplifting musical tribute to the man in black on The Fireside stage.
Season tickets are still available for the entire Fireside Theatre 2010 season, including Hairspray, Sept. 2-Oct. 31, and A Fireside Christmas Featuring “The Child,” Nov. 4-Dec. 23.
