"Prescod impresses with his natural stage presence, his ability to transform himself into a gallery of characters...He commands the stage, never losing our attention...Nevertheless, the text could use some additional work. Prescod's relationship with his mother would benefit from additional fleshing out...It would be interesting to learn how acting helped him turn his life around...'A Brooklyn Boy' flies by, coasting on Prescod's natural charisma and solid technique."
"The amazing one-man show...Includes dozens of voices and much vibrant dancing...The energy in The East Village Playhouse is powerful indeed...Amazing dancing was happening right in front of my eyes...In accordance with the mission of City Kids, I will post that young people are encouraged to see this show. I have a few young New Yorkers I am telling about this fine production. Prescod's ability to sing, dance, and play upwards of 30 roles for an hour is a joy to behold."
