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

"Engagement" was a brilliant play with fast-paced and profound dialogue. The actors were flawless, and no matter your age, you understood the confusion, angst and anger the characters felt about love, life, relationships and how social media has shaped or misshaped our lives. Don't let this play pass you by!!
Directed by Robert Zimmerman
This show is not recommended for ages 13 and younger.
About the Ticket Supplier: The Beverly Hills Playhouse San Francisco Theatre
The Beverly Hills Playhouse-SF opened its doors in September 2009 with one purpose in mind, to begin to develop a pool of actors in the Bay Area who would through their talent, training and professional attitudes bring pride to the already great artistic traditions of San Francisco.
Starting with just six students, BHP/SF has in four short years grown into a multiple discipline program which offers its 60 plus students a place to learn what it really takes to deliver a first class performance either on stage or on set as well as how to meet the demands of the industry with level headed artistic integrity and drive.
The Beverly Hills Playhouse formally opened in Los Angeles in 1978 and since then has trained thousands of actors, directors, producers and writers many of whom have gone on to significant artistic and professional success. Guided by Milton Katselas, the BHP has created two generations of artists known not only for their talent, but also for their exceptionally degree of professionalism.
