If you’re in the mood for some dynamite country and gospel music, the Chemainus Theatre’s latest production Ring of Fire: Project Johnny Cash is for you.

And even if you’re not a fan of the iconic singer/songwriter when you go in, the quality of the presentation will make you one by the time you come out.

But you do need to be in the mood for an evening of music; this production is wallto-wall songs – 29 of them to be exact. If you’re looking for a complex storyline you won’t find it. Some sparse dialogue elucidates a few facts from Cash’s life and timeline, but it’s really just there to glue together the songs, which create a sense of time and place by themselves anyway.

    My sister and I took our dad to this show today, and, may I say, it was Fabulous!!!! Samantha Currie (as June Carter Cash) was absolutely incredible. she has the voice of an angel. There was times during the show that both myself and my dad had tears in our eyes. It was THAT GOOD , thank you Chemainus for putting on an incredible production.
