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 certainly peaked my interest to attend the opera performance, It was interesting to
hear Mark Adamo explain his version of what he found and didn't find in the gospels and making this a timeles piece in-stead of setting the story in ancient times and loations.

This preview was an intriguing airing of ideas about the Bible, Jesus, the Gnostic Gospels, recent biblical research, music, and of course Mary Magdalene herself. Mark Adamo was very articulate and enthusiastic about the concepts behind his music...continued
This is not a full performance, but a discussion of the show which includes musical excerpts.
