My overall impression

In the stage performance of “The Brick,” Bill Berry brings a lot more than top notch songwriting to the table. I was unprepared for the depth of the story that unfolded. And, I have to admit, it hit a little close to home. Family relationships can be extremely difficult to explain, and yet, Bill manages to get to the heart of the matter in a style that somehow mixes humor, resentment, harsh truths, internal struggle, forgiveness and love. Perhaps the highest praise I can state about “The Brick” is that the totality of the presentation is much greater than the sum of its parts. Onstage, Bill is charismatic, talented, vulnerable, and ultimately… brave. Go see this show. Enjoy the roller coaster ride of emotions you’ll experience. Art at this level is a joy to witness and a great reminder of what really matters in life.
