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

“A.C.T.‘s Rock rolls in Stoppard’s genius. Heartbreaking. Extraordinary!” -San Francisco Examiner

A rapturous, decades-spanning tale of Prague’s rock revolution, Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘n’ Roll follows the passions and politics of a Marxist professor in Cambridge and his Rolling Stones–obsessed protégé fighting for freedom in Soviet-dominated Prague. Nominated for four 2008 Tony Awards, Rock ‘n’ Roll pulsates to the beat of the Stones, Pink Floyd, and Syd Barrett, Floyd’s disturbed genius, whose reclusive life becomes a haunting motif of the play.
