Robert M. Gardner says, “MY NAME IS … JOHNNY CASH” ROCKS & ROLLS—Lasiter & Barnaba Light the Ring of Fire” in Theatrius Mar 27, 2021

Jennifer Barnaba on piano, and Steve Lasiter on guitar.

The crowd went wild for Steve Lasiter as Johnny Cash in Million Dollar Quartet – so we’ve brought him back, along with his real-life lady love Jennifer Barnaba, to enact the story of Johnny and his wife June Carter Cash. The set list includes lots of favorites like I Walk The Line, Ring of Fire, A Boy Named Sue, Folsom Prison Blues, and Ghost Riders in The Sky.
