“Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash” Comes to Capital Repertory Theatre [Berkshire on Stage]

0

Johnny Cash was a singular force in American music. A gospel-rooted country singer there at the birth of rock and roll; an inventive, influential songwriter; and an iconic, iconoclastic cultural touchstone.

“Johnny Cash will, like Will Rogers, stand forever as a symbol of intelligence, creativity, compassion and common sense,” said fellow hitmaker and former son-in-law Rodney Crowell on Cash’s death in 2003. “I’m thinking Mt. Rushmore.”

Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash, at Albany’s Capital Repertory Theatre, Friday (July 6)–Sunday, August 12, celebrates the singer with a deep draught of his classic catalog, including timeless favorites like “Folsom Prison Blues,” “I Walk the Line,” “The Man in Black” and “Sunday Mornin,’ Coming Down.”
