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

Very good show. Based on previous reviews, I wasn't sure I was going to like this one...but I absolutely did. Great acting, many stellar performances, cleverly written play. I loved the IDOL format, but agree that the show was about an hour too long....I started getting tired near the end. My bigger problem with this show was the kinda odd audience, a couple who had really poor theatre etiquette (chewing gum loudly, eating from noisy plastic baggies, coming in late and cutting across stage, WEIRD).
