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 an absolute thrill to get the chance to see a performance from someone who was there at some of the greatest moment of theatre of the last century. Jean Shelton is still a great actress (although at 78 the lines don't always come out perfectly, she is true to the character and the situation) and headlines a great night of theatre. The rest of the production is consistently fine, especially the acting of Christian Philips and Jenny Dare Paulin, and the play is a nostalgic slice of life that explores issues of aging, loss and moving on.
