About the event

The music of Johnny Cash has had a remarkable journey from Broadway to theatres across the world.


Conceived by WILLIAM MEADE

Adapted from the Broadway Production by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Jason Edwards

Orchestrations by Steven Bishop and Jeff Lisenby
Additional arrangements by David Abbinanti

Ring of Fire was originally produced on Broadway by William Meade, CTM Productions. Bob Cuillo, GFour Productions and James B. Freydberg

From the iconic songbook of Johnny Cash comes this unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and home and family. More than two dozen classic hits—including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune are performed by a multi-talented cast, and paint a musical portrait of The Man in Black that promises to be a foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ salute to this uniquely American legend! Though he is never impersonated, Johnny Cash’s remarkable life story is told through his music, which will move and exhilarate!

The show recently received a hot new re-conception featuring a cast of five actor/musicians and this will be its UK premiere!

From the opening chords of vintage Country to Rockabilly, Rock n’ Roll, searing ballads and gentle songs of love and deep faith, ROF packs a score that provides a rich fabric in which to lay down the story of Johnny Cash and the incredible struggles and triumphs of his life.

Ring Of Fire gives the music the spotlight, as a group of talented actor/musicians celebrate the songs that are such a part of our collective experience.

“I always thought that life was like a train ride. It may take you to places that you’ve seen all your life. Or it might take you to places you’d never dreamed you’d visit. But one thing is certain. No matter where the train takes you, sooner or later, the trip will end. So the question is: that man who gets off at the last stop – is he a good man?”

So begins the story of “Ring of Fire” – a musical which chronicles the turbulent life of the singer/songwriter Johnny Cash. Read more about his life below.
