Brett is playing the titular nerd in Larry Shue’s THE NERD, upstate New York through July 1st!
The reviews are in!
“It is Brett Epstein as Rick, the Nerd of the title, who has the most elaborate character to play. Epstein gives a world-class performance.” -Berkshire Edge
“This group works and plays beautifully together. Epstein, of course, is the standout here – if he wasn’t, the play would falter – and what a show he puts on for us. His Rick is completely cringeworthy in the absolute best way. Playing it serious against Epstein can’t be easy.” -The Alt
“[The character] Rick may know no bounds but Epstein is shrewdly aware of bounds in a performance that knows just how far it can go without losing an audience.” -Berkshire Eagle
“Epstein has one of those wonderful faces that leaps off the stage and could, if asked, zoom to the last row of an amphitheater. The actor makes full use of it […] to make a reality-based cartoon out of his character.” -Columbia Paper
