Ring of Fire is a celebration of the music of Johnny Cash. Packed with over two dozen of Johnny Cash’s hits, the production is part concert, part biography, and all music. This production is the Citadel’s first foray into summer programming, and it promises to be a great night out for anyone who is a fan of the “Man in Black.”
