‚Äč

From the iconic songbook of Johnny Cash comes a unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and home and family. Theatre at the Center, 1040 Ridge Road, Munster, Indiana, ignites their 2014 season of Premieres with RING OF FIRE- THE MUSIC OF Johnny Cash tonight, February 23. The production will run through March 30. Check out a first look at the cast in action below!

More than 35 of Cash's hit songs including "I Walk the Line", "A Boy Named Sue," "Folsom Prison Blues" and the title tune, paint a musical portrait of The Man in Black that promises to be a foot-stompin', crowd-pleasin' salute to the uniquely American Legend. Leading the cast as "Johnny Cash" will be Kent Lewis with Jeff Award-winner Cory Goodrich starring as "June Carter" and Michael Goodman as "Young Johnny". Four talented multi-instrumentalist/performers round out the cast - Greg Hirte, Malcolm Ruhl, Billy Shaffer, and William Underwood.

The musical revue RING OF FIRE- THE MUSIC OF Johnny Cash guides audiences on a journey through Cash's storied life and celebrated music, from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the Grand Ole Opry. The show was created by Richard Maltby, Jr., conceived by William Meade, with orchestrations by Steven Bishop and Jeff Lisenby. This version is a re-imagining of the original Broadway production, more intimate, but with a full musical soundscape.

Performances are Wednesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m.; Sundays at 2:30 p.m.; and select Thursday evening and Saturday matinees.
