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

Brian Copeland continues to amaze. Great story with multiple characters brought to life in this comedy/drama.

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 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

It was a lovely, heartrending experience. My only problem was that the sound was spotty.

Brian is an excellent story teller. He brings characters to life. The balance of emotions is perfect. Go and bring your friends.

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.

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.
