"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 Ring chronicles 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 (Rent, Dear Evan Hansen), packs a powerful punch with its message of love and redemption.

Michael Cristofer“I am happy to return to the Huntington as a playwright this time, bringing them the true story of Emile Griffith – a young immigrant from the Virgin Islands, a gay man struggling with his identity in the brutal world of sports, trying at the end of his life as he slips into dementia to piece together the story of love and pain and joy that was his life. And to find peace. A true hero in my book.” — Michael Cristofer
