The Mountain Playhouse pursues its goal of enriching the community through captivating theater with its Johnny Cash–inspired production, Ring of Fire, a jukebox musical in the style of Across the Universe that repurposes the Man in Black’s catalogue into an original narrative encapsulating everything Cash. What emerges is a familiar, quintessentially American story of coming up poor, clawing your way to success, and losing everything, only to find out what really matters in life––such as what color you choose to wear from now until eternity. Mountain Playhouse’s rafter-shaking performance is less a play than it is a country-infused ode to an oft-troubled man whose story is in many ways our own.
After Ring of Fire binds itself to musical lovers’ memories, twosomes entertain their tummies at the neighboring gourmet eatery, Green Gables Restaurant. Under the direction of executive chef Susan Kroft, the restaurant serves a seasonal menu in a jaw-dropping dining room that uses four massive oak trunks as columns. When food comas have diners searching for a pillow or hibernating bear upon which to rest their heads, they can head to Huddleson Court for lodging. Though the rooms and cabins evoke a raw, rustic charm, modern amenities include cable TV and an air-jet bathtub in the Orchard suite.
Jennerstown’s pastoral trifecta of dining, dozing, and dramatics began as no more than a simple sandwich stand in 1927. The humble beginnings of Green Gables Restaurant expanded bit by bit to a full-service eatery, whose owner later founded the playhouse in 1939. The building was converted from an abandoned gristmill and relocated log by log from Roxbury in Somerset County. In a sense, the establishment’s rise from its modest beginnings mirrors the life of Johnny Cash himself.
