"A knockout! Fierce, poetic, and profound. Ready for Broadway!” —Chicago Sun Times

Man in the Ring is the colorful and complex true story of six-time world champion prizefighter Emile Griffith and the fight that would haunt him forever. Imbued with the warmth of Griffith’s character and the joyful music of his childhood home, Man in the Ringchronicles his life story, from his humble beginnings in the Virgin Islands to his passionate love affairs and the tragedy that changed his life. Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Michael Cristofer’s epic new play, directed by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (RentDear Evan Hanson), packs a powerful punch with its message of love and redemption.
