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

Interesting concept, but a little boring. More could have been done to get into the whole "live radio play" theme. It was really more just like a book reading or something.
Costumes would've been nice. It also could have been made a little more...continued
Quotes & Highlights
Playwright Joe Landry’s website
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is based on Frank Capra’s classic holiday film starring Jimmy Stewart & Donna Reed. A small-town, good citizen gives into despair when his noble dreams are sabotaged. Saved from suicide by a bumbling guardian angel, he is shown the significance of his life. This holiday favorite is performed in the style of the 1940s live radio broadcasts: Actors lend their voices to the dozens of characters as well as produce the sound effects. Perfect for the whole family, revisit this vibrant celebration of simple goodwill, community, and cheer in the face of hardship.
Director: Christian Phillips
Cast: James Baldock, John Krause, Christian Phillips, Duncan Phillips, Carole Robinson, Phaedra Starr
