Brian CopelandÕs gem, ÒThe Jewelry Box,Ó opened recently at The Marsh in the Mission District of San Francisco. The play will be coming to Moreau for a very special, exclusive event! Receiving rave reviews from critics, this event will provide a meaningful way to gather family and friends during the holiday season (recommended age 12 and up). The story is a Christmas memoir and prequel to CopelandÕs first acclaimed solo play, ÒNot A Genuine Black Man,Ó the longest running one-man play in San Francisco theater history!

Copeland (Moreau, Class of Ô82) is a person who defines the term Òversatile performer.Ó This comedian, writer, television host, talk radio host and commentator has received public and critical acclaim for years. CopelandÕs unique ability to hilariously cut to the heart of some of our most serious social and political problems has earned him spots as the opening act for such diverse artists as Bill Cosby, Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick, Donna Summer, Al Jarreau, Ringo Starr, Manhattan Transfer, Dana Carvey, Kevin Pollack, Rick Springfield, Lou Rawls, Patti La Bell, Etta James, Gregory Hines, The Temptations, and the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.
