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

Overall, two thumbs up. A sensitive and compassionate play about a modern day couple's struggle with new families and old friends. Daring performances with a sexy cast, Gabrielle Patacsil, Leah Shesky and Andy Strong. And a realistic performance from 12-year-old Nandi Drayton as the center of a world close to falling apart. Herman's script was engaging and McNulty's direction was clean and clever. PianoFight took a good risk with this production. Also the Alcove theatre is comfortable and unique. Sit back, drink a beer and watch the drama unfold.
