BWW Review: RING OF FIRE at SHEA'S 710 THEATRE
by Michael Rabice - Feb 19, 2017

Much has changed in Buffalo, including is storied theatrical past. A coming home of sorts is happening at SHEA'S 710 THEATRE. Ring of Fire: THE MUSIC OF JOHNNY CASH has returned to the stage where the production began. In 2005 Studio Arena Theatre produced this jukebox musical created by Richard Maltby Jr and conceived by William Meade. After a short run that earned much local praise, the production moved to Broadway, something not typical for Buffalo. Unfortunately the New York critics and audiences were less enthusiastic, and the production shuttered after a very brief run. But Ring of Fire, much like Studio Arena and Buffalo itself, was to have it's own rebirth. A reworked version in 2013 by Maltby and Jason Edwards has become much more of a success and audiences across the United States have been quite receptive. Amherst's MusicalFare Theatre presentation from last season is now playing out in a lively and pitch perfect production. (more...)
