Why See Ring of Fire?

The songs of music legend Johnny Cash come to life in this new musical revue.

From the songs and stories of a true legend comes a theatrical and musical experience that will lieft your heart and stir your soul. Ring of Fire, created and directed by Tony winner Richard Maltby, Jr. (Ain't Misbehavin', Fosse), is a journey into the heart and heartland of America, courtesy of one of our most beloved musical poets—Johnny Cash.

In Ring of Fire, 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 revered storytellers in American music.
