Johnny Cash musical coming to Broadway

Johnny and wife June

Tommy Mottola, who I only know as the man who gave us Mariah Carey, is taking on Broadway with a new musical about music legend Johnny Cash.

The working title of the project is “Johnny & June,” referring to the late singer and his famous wife, June Carter Cash.

It will be directed by Tony winner Des McAnuff, who previously collaborated with Mottola on musicals including Bob Dylan’s “Girl From the North Country,” “Groundhog Day,” “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” and “A Bronx Tale: The Musical.”

This could be amazing if handled properly.  Fingers crossed!
