Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre is running the Broadway hit Ring of Fire playing from now to June 5. Ring of Fire celebrates the "man in Black," Johnny Cash, and his remarkable life story is told through his music.

He was a poor Arkansas boy who picked cotton on the family farm before embarking on 50 years of writing more than 1,000 songs. Johnny Cash spent his career strumming hiss Martin guitar and singing in his distinctive bass/baritone voice that won him 17 Grammys and sold more than 90 million albums

Even after his death, Johnnny Cash is still one of the most popular entertains of all time. Ring of Fire tells his story of passion, redemption, humor and salvation. The musical includes eight multi-talented singers and a phenomenal six-piece orchestra on stage in a show celebration of the world's most favorite rebel.
