As most of you are aware, New York City will require proof of vaccination for indoor performances beginning September 13th. We will be enforcing this policy for all upcoming performances, and ask that all audience members, regardless of vaccination status, remain masked. All staff and performers will be vaccinated, performers may not be masked. Audience can provide proof of vaccination with a government issued I.D. along with a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or the Excelsior Pass App. We are navigating this day to day just like all of you so please be patient with staff when you attend your next Brick event. We love all of you.
An excerpt from a one person play tentatively titled, “Pink Fingernails,” about a teen trans girl and high school dropout who begins collecting money from her casual hookups to save up for an imperial fortress of her own making. Based on true events.
heart beats conjures memories of the mother-daughter relationship, speaks to the loss of innocence, discipline, freedom, youth, aging, and the passage of time.

When you have a crush on someone (also referred to as ‘limerence’), you put all your focus and infatuation on another person, but it’s really more about you.
Sometimes you want to fall in love, but you aren’t ready, or you’re scared, so you choose someone who is in some way unavailable or unreachable.
When you do this, the romance between you and your crush happens mostly inside your mind, in a fantasy outside of traditional reality. Having a crush is generative, an act of creating substance from absence.
This show explores the different elements of a crush by drawing from personal experiences.
