After so many years of wanting to see Brian's one man show, I finally did. I found it to be very insightful and entertaining. I can see why his book is now in colleges and universities across America. I would recommend this show to anyone who has not yet seen i,t as it has taken a long time to get it to San Jose. The venue is great, not a bad seat in the place.

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
