Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash

 Vintage Theatre presents
Ring of Fire: the music of Johnny Cash
Created by Richard Maltby Jr. Conceived by Bill Meade
Directed by Kelly Van Oosbree

Vintage Theatre and Lowry’s Spotlight Theatre present the Denver premiere of “Ring of Fire: the music of Johnny Cash” June 23 through August 6. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays and Monday, July 3 at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 2:30 p.m. at the Vintage Theatre, 1468 Dayton St., Aurora 80010.  Tickets are $28 - $34 and available online at www.vintagetheatre.com or by calling 303-856-7830.

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!

The cast includes Ray Anderson, Benjamin Cowhick, Isabella Duran, S Parker Goubert and Eric Weinstein.

Richard Maltby conceived and directed the only two musical revues to ever win the Tony Award for Best Musical: Ain't Misbehavin' (1978: Tony, N.Y. Drama Critics, Outer Critics, Drama Desk Awards, also Tony Award for Best Director) and Fosse (1999: Tony, Outer Critics, Drama Desk Awards). He was director/co-lyricist for the American version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Song and Dance, (1986) starring Bernadette Peters. He was co-lyricist for Miss Saigon (Evening Standard Award 1990; Tony nomination: Best Score, 1991). He is also well known as a constructor of cryptic crossword puzzles.

Bill Meade began his career as a musician. He has been a featured soloist with numerous orchestras, including the Zurich Philharmonic, Prague Philharmonic, and Jacksonville Symphony. On Broadway, he has been involved with more than 50 musicals. He is a Grammy-nominated record producer with a wide range of theatrical releases to his credit, from Hello, Dolly! with Carol Channing to Elegies by William Finn.
