About the show:
I'm Not Sure I Like the Way You Licked Me!
Through humor, story telling, honesty and a little bit of rock and roll, share with Bricken the battles she has fought, the mountains she has climbed, and the licks she has endured.

Bricken Sparacino is an award winning/nominated performer, director and writer. After directing 8 solo shows, she is turning the spotlight on herself. Her show focuses on the small meannesses of life. You pick yourself up and solider on. But why? Why don't we fight back? Bricken invites the audience to face the ugly and laugh at it all.

I'm Not Sure I Like the Way You Licked Me! " a very brave, honest, funny, endearing show." - Amy E. Witting, aWe Creative
