Award-winning actress/playwright Chris Black enters the ring for a dramatic one-woman show in Tough, which is inspired by the life of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, who traveled coast-to-coast challenging people to fights. While Sullivan's background, rise to fame and decline motivate the performance, Black's interest also lies in what it means to be strong and how athletes and performers harness that "special something" to become extraordinary. Black opens the show by throwing her hat in the ring and announcing the rules of the game, all while enjoying some good whiskey. Don't miss this unique, gender-bending performance that mixes power and poignancy. Learn More

My grandmother took me to see this play. The eighth graders at my school did "As you like it" for their winter play. But, they did the old Shakespeare version. It was soooooo confusing that the first & second graders had to leave early. I think that this version is a lot more fun. Especially because of the use of famous songs that everyone knows. I would love to see this play again to show it to the eighth graders and say "HA!!"
As You Like It
Based on the comedy by William Shakespeare
