The legendary songbook of Johnny Cash comes to life in a musical portrait performed by a multi-talented cast. Featuring over two dozen hit songs and the Man in Black’s timeless spirit of love, faith and rebellion.

“A unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and home and family” (BroadwayWorld), Ring of Fire has wowed audiences across the country. Creator Richard Maltby, Jr. (Miss Saigon, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Fosse) shared his inspiration in a previous statement, “most of the songs in the show are songs people already know…And yet put together in an evening, they tell a story. Johnny had the soul of a poet, and when you listen to these songs together you hear something in them that is surprising.”


At Actors Theatre, the talented company includes actor-musicians Brian Russell Carey, Alex Keiper, Corbin Mayer and Paul Wyatt.

Dan Kazemi directs and music directs the production with choreography by Stephanie Card. The production features scenic design by Michelle Lilly, lighting design by Aimee Hanyzewski, costume design by Alexander B. Tecoma and sound design by Barry G. Funderburg. Katherine Thesing will serve as the stage manager.

Audience members can complete their excursion to the Theatre with a visit to MilkWood, the award-winning eatery from Chefs Edward Lee and Kevin Ashworth, located in the Theatre’s downtown complex. Ticketholders may present their Ring of Fire ticket during the run of the show to receive a free beverage from the drink menu with the purchase of a meal.
