If the concept of a Johnny Cash musical sounded tacky, the execution seems to be lacking a little something, too. Like a direction. Director Richard Maltby doesn't even seem to know what he's meant to be directing:

"This isn't a biography. It's 38 songs without connecting material, but it's not a revue. It has a story, it has characters," he continued, but no plot. It's some other kind of theatre piece, a play made up of songs. It's a book-musical without a book."

Well, that's cleared that up.
