A story of hope, promises unkept, human weakness and brotherly love. If there is such a thing as an eloquent kick in the teeth, The Brothers Size is exactly that. We are privileged to experience such richness for the mere price of a ticket.

Very strong performances! The 3 Actors worked your mind, the stage and your heart. The Fountain theater is a small theater so any seat is good. Nice staff and good production.

Quotes & Highlights

  • “This is sure to be one of the season’s memorable productions … seamless physicality and dramatic urgency … intoxicating choreography … The muscular ensemble doesn’t let up for a moment.” — LA Weekly
  • “An atmosphere of mythic mystery suffuses Tarrell Alvin McCraney’s compelling drama about family, sacrifice, and deceit … Director Finney enacts the goings on with urgency and vigor, and the cast delivers ferociously intense and organic acting work … affecting both as a work of folklore and as a gritty commentary on the role of African Americans in contemporary American society.” —Stage and Cinema
  • “Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney boasts a rare talent: an utterly distinctive voice. He sounds like no one else, his cadences hearty and beautiful. I am in love with his voice, and in all likelihood you will feel the same way … Rhapsodic flights of poetically rhythmic language and compelling physical immediacy … It all works to splendid effect throughout under the absolutely attuned direction of Shirley Jo Finney.” —The Hollywood Reporter
  • “Shirley Jo Finney’s vibrant direction, the vivid choreography and songs, and the remarkable three-man cast make this intimate production richly theatrical.” – Los Angeles Times, Critic’s Pick
