The theatre is in the same building as '50s diner Peggy Sue's, which is open late, so I went there after the show. I can't recommend it. Overcooked, flavorless burger; chili cheese fries tasted mostly of the beans.

The theatre has a full bar with snacks - cookies, mini-cheesecakes; I had a Brie plate that wasn't abusively priced at six dollars. Not really anything to make a meal of.

An amazing story and engaging performance - Brian does a great job of sharing his story in a wonderfully entertaining style. I love his humor!

Extremely engaging. This 2 hour one-man show never lost my attention for a moment. While addressing a serious subject, it was nicely interspersed with some very funny comments. Definitely worth seeing.

Quotes & Highlights

In addition to the Marsh in San Francisco and Berkeley, the show was also a hit with Goldstar members in its run at the American Conservatory Theater.
“Copeland is a winning, magnetic performer who knows how to work an audience … a beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who’s ever felt out of place.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Copeland’s ability to captivate an audience rivals many a celebrated solo predecessor from Ruth Draper to Spalding Gray to Whoopi Goldberg … Copeland is a genuine discovery.” —Los Angeles Times
“Engaging … Copeland knows how to spin a dramatic yarn.” —The New York Times
