Review: Man in the Ring (Court Theatre)

Court Theatre's Man in the Ring, by Michael Cristofer, dances and spars at the intersection of violence and love, two things that are inextricably twined in Emile Griffith’s world. It’s a world well-worth immersing yourself in. It’s the rare world premiere that you hope has a long life on stages the world over. Highly Recommended! (read Catey Sullivan's entire review...)
