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

It is so refreshing to come across a situation where aspiring creative artists are given a chance to showcase their talents. Round One Cabaret provided that opportunity and we really enjoyed it. Because of its format, the program was a mix of works by a number of different composers and lyricists. We liked some more than others, but the overall quality level was very good and the troupe that performed each piece was talented and engaging. We applaud the members of Not Quite Opera, the production company, for carrying out its mission of incubating new musicals, and hope they will stage more events like Round One Cabaret.
