Walking the line
with man in black
Tex Perkins: Plays Johnny Cash in The
Man in Black.
The Man in Black -- Johnny Cash --
was one of the most incredible
entertainers ever to grace the stage.
He was a man who stood up for the
downtrodden, the disenfranchised,
indigenous Americans, the
imprisoned and all those who had
suffered a raw deal in life.
Now, following sold-out seasons in
Australia, the award-winning show
The Man in Black -- The Johnny
Cash Story comes to Napier s
Municipal Theatre on Monday, July
11. Celebrating the life and times of
this amazing musician, The Man in
Black features two hours of Cash s
magnificent music interwoven with
the story of his rise to stardom, his
fight for survival and his redemp-
Starring Tex Perkins as the man
himself, Rachael Tidd as June
Carter Cash and The Tennessee
Four Band, the show takes
audiences through some of Cash s
greatest songs, including Ring of
Fire, I Walk the Line and Folsom
Prison Blues. Perkins has played the
role through 132 sold-out shows so
far and says he never gets tired of
the man or the music.
It s good, simple, honest music
sung by a guy with a voice you can
believe had done the things he s sing-
ing about, he says.
As a child I think the first of
Cash s songs that I heard was A Boy
Named Sue. The story-telling aspect
really attracted me, also I think it
was the first song I d heard that had
words bleeped out, which would have
got me thinking! Later as a young
musician it was the simplicity of the
music and the occasional badass
lyrics like I shot a man in Reno just
to watch him die -- that was appeal-
ing, Perkins says.
Fans of Johnny cash will really
enjoy this show -- but anyone who
enjoys a great band playing great
songs should give it a shot as well.

Story, Napier Municipal Theatre,
