MONTREAL – After five successful summer seasons at the Capitole de Québec, The Man in Black has arrived in Montreal – and it’s just in time for the 33rd edition of the Just for Laughs Festival.

The show is a tribute to the life and music of American singer-songwriter Johnny Cash and is being presented at the Théâtre St-Denis from July 1 to 11.

The famous singer is brought to life by talented impersonator Shawn Barker, whose resemblance to Cash is truly uncanny.
