by Cybele Pomeroy - Jul 18, 2016

Vocally and instrumentally, the performers do an excellent job of animating beloved legends.Their musicianship is impressive and Musical Director Amy Jones has done a terrific job creating authentic-sounding renditions of well-known songs. JP Coletta's athletic interpretation of Jerry Lee is absurdly fun to watch. As Elvis, Travis Artz is enthusiastic and delivers excellent footwork. Adding some feminine energy to the show, Elvis' girlfriend 'Dyanne,' portrayed by Bella Muller in a saucy, sultry performance, blows the audience away singing 'Fever.' (more...)

BWW Review: RING OF FIRE, Johnny Cash Jukebox Musical, Delights at PorthouseBWW Review: RING OF FIRE, Johnny Cash Jukebox Musical, Delights at Porthouse

While not autobiographical, per se, there is enough of the tale of the man to gain an understanding of Cash, his music, his strong belief in social causes, and his personal problems. (more...)
