NEW YORK (AP) - "Ring of Fire," a musical celebration of country legend and Arkansas native Johnny Cash, will close Sunday on Broadway after a run of less than two months.

The show, which features nearly 40 songs associated with Cash, will have played 57 performances at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.

"Ring of Fire" was created and directed by Richard Maltby, Jr., who created the Fats Waller musical revue, "Ain't Misbehavin'."
