A stage musical with a boxing theme?
“Cutman,” a musical that runs through June 5 at the Goodspeed Musicals theater in East Haddam, Conn., is just that.
The play is about a Jewish boxer who dreams of being a world champion. However, when his title shot falls on the eve of Yom Kippur, he must choose between his passion and his faith.
The high-energy score spans the spectrum of contemporary music, from rock to pop to hip-hop to R&B.
The following videos give you a taste of the production but you can read all about it in the August 2011 issue of THE RING magazine, which will be on newsstands on June 28.
