Friday, September 16, 8 pm

Franklin Theater, 419 Main Street, Franklin

Join us at The Franklin Theatre for a concert performance of the new musical JOHNNY & THE DEVIL’S BOX! Written by Franklin local Douglas Waterbury-Tieman, and boasting a creative team of Broadway greats, including Jennifer Jancuska (Hamilton) and Scott Wasserman (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, The Great Comet), JOHNNY & THE DEVIL’S BOX will receive its official Regional Premiere at Cumberland County Playhouse in the fall of 2022.

JOHNNY & THE DEVIL’S BOX is a jubilant new musical with one foot in the Georgia mountains and the other on the Grand Ole Opry stage. The authentically bluegrass score sets in motion a story that will stir the soul. Johnny Baker believes he is the best fiddler to ever live and aims to prove it. However, his pursuit of glory attracts the attention of another fiddler—the Devil himself—who aims to destroy Johnny and reclaim his rightful place in the Angel Band.
