BWW Review: MAN IN THE RING Goes The DistanceBWW Review: MAN IN THE RING Goes The Distance
by Nancy Grossman - Dec 1, 2018

MAN IN THE RING deserves better than to be described with boxing cliches, but the Huntington Theatre Company production of Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Cristofer's play is a knockout.
