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
The show is about 90 minuts with no intermission. The theatre is located on Florida Street near 16th. Very tough to park there at night. I got lucky. But afterwards I drove to 24th between Harrison and Alabama and ate at the Pig and Pie. If you don't know it, google it. Just a terrific place. But again parking is not that easy.The Pornographer's Daughter dining • Jan 31 2014 star this tip starred

Wonderful ensemble. Loved to see so many talented bay area actresses and actors work their magic. A sweetly old-fashioned and light and sad and funny collection of stories. Engaging, uplifting without being saccharine.

I did not feel that In Friendship was a good choice by Word for Word. Really simple dialog without any substantial emotional content. Not the best use of some very good talent. I had enjoyed their production of "You Know When the Men Are Gone"...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Z Space StudioFounded in 1993 by David Dower, the Z Space Studio has become one of the nation's leading laboratories for the development of new voices, new works and new directions in American theater.
By creating a space where all types of artistic development can occur side by side, the Z Space has become what Berkeley Repertory Theatre's Artistic Director Tony Taccone describes as "a virtual bastion of creativity, a bubbling cauldron of new work, and a safe haven for unfettered creative expression."
Given the nature of development as a "behind the scenes" endeavor, the Studio's impact is often invisible to the general public. However, whether they know it or not, over 100,000 people across the country experience theater from artists that developed at the Studio through our three main programs (Word for Word Performing Arts Company, Z Plays Development, and Youth Arts).
The Z Space employs hundreds of artists each year in the process of developing new works -- creating work for a diverse audiences in fields as varied as solo performance, ensemble theater, puppetry, acrobatics, dance, and multimedia production.
