Posted: June 22 / 2020

Asolo Rep continues its GROUND FLOOR SERIES: MAKING MUSICALS, on Thursday, June 25 at 6pm with a preview of JOHNNY AND THE DEVIL’S BOX, a new bluegrass musical with book, music and lyrics by Douglas Waterbury-Thieman: In the dark days of the Great Depression, a beacon of hope shines from the depths of the Georgia foothills: Johnny Baker plays the meanest fiddle the world has ever seen. When a mysterious preacher rolls into the small town of Crossings and threatens to destroy what little they have, Johnny teams up with the no-nonsense Abigail to wage the next war in the ultimate battle of Good versus Evil with nothing but his fiddle for a weapon. Infused with American folk and bluegrass, this gripping tale will have you stomping your feet and clapping your hands in no time.
