Ring of Fire

Eldorado Showroom
Friday, February 7, 2014 to Sunday, May 4, 2014

“Ring of Fire,” a musical based on the music of American singer-songwriter Johnny Cash, will appear in the Eldorado Showroom February 7 through May 4. The show is presented nightly except Mondays; showtimes Tuesday & Fridayat 8 p.m., Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 7 and 9:30 p.m.

The production, while not a biography of Cash, uses 38 of his songs to celebrate the essence of an American experience. These iconic songs tell stories of a hard life lived in the heartland, about love of partner, family, home and land.

Featuring a cast of six principles paired off to make three couples at various stages of life, the Cash lyrics conjure life experiences that are then applied to the characters. “Ring of Fire” includes some of Cash’s most beloved songs such as “Daddy Sang Bass,” “Ring of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” I’ve Been Everywhere,” “The Man in Black” and his final hit, “Hurt.”
