Tex Perkins is Johnny Cash. I came away impressed by the idea and execution of the show at the Athenaeum Theatre. It is a bold step for a performer to take and he, the band and Rachael Tidd as June Carter Cash is great.
At times he is Johnny Cash, at other times when telling Cash's story it moves into the third person. The songs are great, Tex and Rachael unite well on songs and you get a fantastic band. James Black's guitar work is a standout.
You get the myth, you get the myth busted, you hear great songs performed with passion.
