Steve Brock stars as himself in the world premiere of “My Calico Soul” during the Hollywood Fringe Festival. This show is written and Produced by Steve Brock and directed by Jessica Lynn Johnson.
“My Calico Soul” is a journey of bisexual identity and taking all the labels that get thrust upon us or even give to ourselves and thoroughly accepting all of them. He brings you through early life and to present day using stories of his childhood, his awkward teenage years and even his adulthood. Also, as an accomplished singer/songwriter, he includes original music to help tell the story.
Review of a workshop version of “My Calico Soul”:
“Steve Brock opens up his solo fest with a lovely song into a smooth segue, ‘We all have labels. I am singer/songwriter, actor, artist and bisexual.’ He begins to speak about gender fluidity and educates the audience with his gentle voice. He paints a portrait of his tormented childhood, acting out his own traumatic story. His performance lingers like important poetry. Each of his songs helps to move his story along; his original songs are delightful and apropos. This show is riveting because of the level of detail and the nuanced, vivid images telling the story that no one knew, his feelings and his survival, no doubt through his excellent music." – Yvonne Ronceros, – NoHoArtsDistrict.com
