Arts preview: "Ring of Fire"

Jim Fischer
"Ring of Fire"

"Ring of Fire" is not a Johnny Cash biopic, even though 33 of the Man in Black's tunes are featured in the play. As director Steven C. Anderson said, "No one is Johnny Cash and everyone plays Johnny Cash." "Ring of Fire" is a tale of life in America - a broader story about the American experience told via those aforementioned Cash-penned tunes, including "I Walk the Line" and "Folsom Prison Blues," as well as songs he popularized, like "Daddy Sang Bass" and "A Boy Named Sue." Central Ohio native Travis Smith performs and serves as music director.
