The legend is set to be immortalised on Broadway...

Johnny Cash is to be idolised in a BROADWAY musical expected to hit theatres in late 2006.

The late legend’s life will be the focus of ‘Ring Of Fire’, directed by Richard Maltby Jr, reports Variety.

The show, which will feature Johnny Cash’s faith, love and life experiences, will feature over 49 songs by him and his late wife June Carter Cash.

The title track, ‘I’ve Been Everywhere’, ’Folsom Prison Blues’ and ’A Boy Named Sue’ all feature in the play, which producer Bill Meade and Phoenix Prods will preview in select cities next autumn.
