Brian's show is intense & personal. Be prepared for the roller coaster!

I always like Brian Copeland & try to see anything he does. However, there were a few moments in this performance when it was hard to differentiate the characters he was alternating between because there wouldn't be much change in his voice or...continued

The show was great! I laughed and teared-up at times. A lot of it hit close to home.
The venue was cozy and the people working there were friendly and helpful.

Brian Copeland is a genius. After seeing his first show, "NOT A GENUINE BLACKMAN" I did not that he could ever top that show. I was wrong. This show was great! Brian showed how a person deals with depression in a very sensitive, serious way with...continued

Not quite as deep and meaningful as I had hoped. But then again, how many "meaning of life" works of art are?

The passion and commitment of Brian Copeland was evident throughout the performance. By courageously dramatizing his agony, he encourages those in the audience who might be suffering from depression to seek help. Unfortunately, he undermined the...continued

First time to the Marsh. Very human and inviting staff. Mr. Copeland couldn't have been better, so far as I'm concerned. Brought a little humor to "depression" and a lot of info. I thank him for his brilliant offering.

A true, genuine, right-on-the-money testament to what can happen with depression. Bring some tissue if you think this topic may hit home. The venue is fitting (small and intimate) for the subject matter. Brian's talent shines brightly. If you know...continued

The show was not top-notch. The actor's impersonation of others was not too relevant or convincing. Nevertheless, the performance was noted for its honesty and was quite moving at times. Nice use of humor, also

This is a 1-man show by Brian Copeland about his own depression. It is a noble attempt but I felt he needed more "distance", that is more time-distance from his personal experience to make this a good piece of Theater.

Solid performance and worth the price. The bare stage effect is appropriate for the dark topic, but a few select props may have brought the story more to life, as there are points in the play that are a bit dull.
Overall though, well worth it...continued

This show was pretty entertaining. However, I thought it ended rather abruptly. Also, I had a hard time feeling too sorry for a guy WHO HAS 3 KIDS who would consider killing himself. Another minor criticism: not quite enough was made of the...continued
