A solo musical comedy by Kirsten Rasmussen.
Ding Ding! In the left corner is award-winning comedian Kirsten Rasmussen and in the right corner… Kirsten Rasmussen? A solo physical comedy with as much heart as it has laugh out loud moments. See what happens when a lounge singer with a troubled past goes toe-to-toe against a boxer with a bright future. Through punch combos and sweet songs, this hilarious tale exposes what it truly means to be Tough!
With live music from one of Montreal’s finest jazz trio under the direction of Jeff Louch. The songs will have you dancing in your seats!
