Brian Copeland to Bring NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN to Berkeley Rep, 4/23-5/31
by BWW News Desk - May 30, 2014

Berkeley Repertory Theatre welcomes comedian and radio talk-show host Brian Copeland for the 10th anniversary presentation of his critically acclaimed show, Not a Genuine Black Man.

More than that, he's got an important tale to tell!' Directed and developed in part by David Ford, Not a Genuine Black Man previews on April 23, 2014, opens April 25, 2014, and plays through May 31, 2014. (more...)
