RING OF FIRE: THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF JOHNNY CASH AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY SEPT. 13

 

LA CROSSE, Wis. – The 2013–14 Viterbo University Bright Star Season will open with Ring of Fire: The Life and Music of Johnny Cash at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

            Ring of Fire: The Life and Music of Johnny Cash is a musical revue exploring the life and times of legendary musical artist Johnny Cash. It is considered one of the best jukebox musicals of our time and features more than 35 classic songs, including Ring of Fire, I Walk the Line, I’ve Been Everywhere, and Folsom Prison Blues.

            “Most of the songs in the show are songs people already know,” show creator Richard Maltby Jr. said previously. “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 the something in them that is surprising. It’s the story of America. Perhaps it is an America that doesn’t exist anymore, but it certainly exists in our American mythology.”

Ring of Fire: The Life and Music of Johnny Cash is sponsored by U.S. Bank and in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin. KICKS 106.3 FM is the media sponsor and Candlewood Suites of La Crosse is the hotel sponsor.

Tickets are $35 for main floor, $31 for lower balcony, and $26 for upper balcony seating. For more information or to order tickets, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit www.viterbo.edu/tickets.
