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
We went to the Saturday matinee and parked at the Donatello hotel. It was only $10 for 5 hours so you have plenty of time before or after for a bite to eat before or after. There's a half price happy hour at the hotel restaurant tooThe Orphan of Zhao info • Jun 23 2014 star this tip starred

Wonderful sets, costumes, lighting, etc. An excellent adaptation from the French that was faithful to the intent, but not so rigid in translation that the original farcical nature would be lost. It played well to a contemporary American audience....continued
In this cheeky satire, an old hypochondriac believes in nothing and no one—except the dubious diagnoses his quack doctors keep delivering. A.C.T.‘s new production of The Imaginary Invalid offers a hysterical exposé of society’s childlike devotion to staying “well”—and a prescription for a rollicking good time.
By Molière (The Misanthrope, The School for Wives, Tartuffe, The Miser, The Bourgeois Gentleman)
Adapted by Constance Congdon
Directed by Ron Lagomarsino
