The Eldorado Pays Tribute to Johnny Cash with “Ring of Fire” in the Showroom February 7-May 4, 2014
RENO, Nev. (January 2, 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 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.
The real story of Johnny Cash is told in his music which is not presented chronologically in the show but instead categorically. Dividing the show into four parts–Boyhood Years, Opry and Fame, Dark Years, Redemption and Celebration–gives the audience the chance to see the influence that Cash’s life experiences played in the creation of his music. 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, Boy Named Sue, The Man in Black, Folsom Prison Blues and his final hit, Hurt.
Variety magazine said “Ring of Fire is Hot” and USA Today praised the show, noting, “Fire Burns Brighter, Truer and with More Imagination than Most.”
