Los Angeles – The musical drama “The Wrong Man,” inspired by Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues makes its world premiere at the Skylight Theatre on Saturday, February 8 at 8:00pm.

"The Wrong Man" is a musical tale about a man facing execution for a crime he did not commit. It is a story about what happens when the wrong man meets the wrong girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. When things spiral out of control our hero is left at the mercy of a flawed judicial system.

Golans’ sound has been described as “Tom Waits meets R Kelly on acoustic guitar.”
