Creator of Not a Genuine Black Man, the longest-running solo show in San Francisco history, the multi-talented Brian Copeland mounts his third one-man production, The Scion, an incisively funny look at class inequality. With his razor-sharp wit, Copeland examines the events surrounding the infamous Santos Linguisa Factory triple homicide, in which the sausage dynasty's scion gunned down three meat inspectors as they attempted to enter the facility. Walking the line between comedy and tragedy, Copeland turns the microscope on the privileged few that believe themselves to be above the law. An author, comedian, radio and TV host, Copeland also recently starred alongside Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson in the film The Bucket List and is the creator of the critically acclaimed solo show The Waiting Period.

Don Reed just may be a performing genius - he can dance, act, sing, do impressions, make crazy faces and write. Sadly, he cannot edit. Hence the 4 instead of 5 star rating. The show is too long. When intermission came at the hour mark, I'd had enough, an enjoyable enough, but still enough. The second act was 45 minutes. I'd much rather leave a show wishing it had been longer rather than resenting its length.
