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

No Motown enthusiast should ever miss this performance. I travelled to San Francisco for the first time for my birthday. This event was one of many events I planned for myself. I enjoyed the story behind the events surrounding the success of Motown, dancing, singing and band so much that my cheeks were hurting from constantly smiling. I loved the way the performers encouraged audience participation. I would highly recommend this show. If possible I would recommend the performers fly to Chicago and perform in one of our many wonderful theaters. I bet they would do quite well. If they come to Chicago I would see the show again, this time with several friends and family members.
