A masterwork by a master of the one-man show. Brilliantly written, directed and performed. I was deeply touched. A completely realized theatrical experience.

Went with eight family members and everyone loved it. I called the theater ahead to ask about bringing my three kids. My youngest, 7, is younger than the recommended age (but if we didn't bring him an adult would need to miss the show). Their...continued

This was such a charming show and one I could relate to. Great delivery on Brian's part and his timing was impeccable.

This is the second Brian Copeland show I've seen, and I enjoyed this one. I laughed, I cried. He tells a really poignant tale of growing up poor in East Oakland, and his love for his family shows throughout. Highly recommend this show, and any...continued

The Jewelry Box brought back memories of my childhood, too (I remember the store "White Front"!) yet I do not think I could have described the feelings of a six year old child with the grace and realism of Brian Copeland. This performance made me...continued

This show was delightful, meaningful and well-crafted. In this "true" story, young Brian transported me into the holiday spirit. The Jewelry Box is a wonderful story - full of warmth, family and a cast of great characters. Thank you Brian.

We had the most delightful evening. Already a big fan of Brian Copelands, we knew we were in for a treat. We bought my parents a Goldstar gift certificate to ensure that they will go, posted on my Face Book page and I have a friends who will be...continued

Excellent, "feel-good "show. We're both glad we saw it. A positive gift for the holiday season, lifting our spirits.
I was particularly impressed when the staff person/ticket seller left the theater and came down the street to let me know my...continued

As always, he was thoughtful, poignant and well prepared. Too bad that the performance was only sparsely attended.

This is the art of story-telling at its best. Humor and pathos throughout. Entertaining and emotionally grabbing. Excellent!

Touching Christmas tale from Brian's childhood in Oakland, with memorable animated performances of his family members and neighborhood characters. The performance is only an hour long, perfect for an evening just before or after dinner time. ...continued

It was beautiful and tragic - at the end of the play one friend was weeping one friend was joyous -reminds me of an O"Henry story in terms of the irony- We loved it, I may see it again
