A new stage musical based on the life of country king Johnny Cash will have its final show on 7th May after just 94 shows.

The musical Ring Of Fire failed to set New York's Broadway alight when it debuted on 12th March and it continues to fight falling audiences at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.

However, Jason Edwards, the show's star, claims the project has been an enormous success. "The theatre community loved it, and we were getting standing ovations after every performance. "It has done amazing things for my career. We are really proud of it," Contactmusic quoted Jason Edwards as saying.
