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
Ion by Euripides
Translated by W. S. Di Piero
Directed by Barbara Damashek
Join American Conservatory Theatre for a new staging of one of Euripides’ most beautifully written plays. Filled with false prophecies and mysterious family secrets, Ion traces the dramatic chain of events that unfolds when the god Apollo disrupts the lives of a royal family, stirring up catastrophe, confusion, and—at long last—happy resolution. This fresh take on a classic work features the A.C.T. M.F.A. Program class of 2012.
