Goldstar just added new discount ticket dates for Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash. I think this would be a fun show, don’t you?

This foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ country jukebox musical celebrates the songs of a true American original — the Man in Black himself, Johnny Cash. Ring of Fire is a song-fueled journey through the music of one of the country’s most iconic singer-songwriters. Created by Tony Award winner Richard Maltby Jr. (Ain’t Misbehavin’, Fosse), the musical explores Cash’s faith, success, struggles and famous romance with fellow performer June Carter Cash through songs like “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues” and, of course, “Ring of Fire.” This Broadway musical revue cracks Cash’s hit-filled songbook wide open, and brings the Man in Black’s music, wit and raw power to life on the Mercury Theater Chicago stage.
