Performance - Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash

Vintage Theatre and Lowry’s Spotlight Theatre present the Denver premiere of “Ring of Fire: the music of Johnny Cash” From the opening chords of vintage Country to Rockabilly, Rock n’ Roll, searing ballads and gentle songs of love and deep faith, Ring of Fire packs a score that provides a rich fabric in which to lay down the story of Johnny Cash. The show features 38 classic hits – including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune –and paints a musical portrait of The Man in Black that is a foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ salute to a uniquely American legend!
