In this hilarious and heartwarming prequel to his hit show Not a Genuine Black Man, beloved actor-playwright Brian Copeland recounts three memorable weeks in his youth when he took to the "mean streets" of Oakland to buy his mom the perfect Christmas gift. Rife with references to 1970s Oakland, The Jewelry Box: A Genuine Christmas Story follows six-year-old Brian's adventures as he scours the help wanted ads, applies for jobs and collects bottles, inching his way toward the coveted present, a jewelry box at the local White Front store. Not a Genuine Black Man broke records as the longest running solo show in San Francisco history and brought Copeland critical acclaim as one of the city's most talented and engaging solo performers.

Brian was so enjoyable in "The Scion"! I was so into his storytelling, and loved the way he successfully incorporates comedy, tragedy, history, and charm to his show. And, mind you, he had script in hand as this show is still in development, but Mr. Copeland was nonetheless on point. After the show, he offered comp tickets to the audience for his holiday show, "The Jewelry Box," which was very courteous of him! Can't wait to see "The Scion" once it's finalized in Feb. 2014!
