Brooklyn Quartet is not just a play, it's a movement. It's a fictional tale about 3 kids from Brooklyn, NY, bookmarked by the infamous and very real Sean Bell shooting, at the hands of NYC police officers, in 2006, a story sprinkled with issues of race, privilege, gender, gentrification, relationships, gun violence, PTSD, and so many more things that affect all of us, every day of our collective lives, but at the end of the day, Brooklyn Quartet is a love story. It's a play with the intention of disrupting us into dialogue about the state of the world. It's a way of getting a whole lot of people into a performance space together and creating a beautiful shared experience. A provocative experience. An experience that asks questions. That inspires empathy. Brooklyn Quartet is a movement about how, no matter what's going on around us in this world; all of the atrocities, all of the chaos, all of the confusion, it's about that at the end of the day, no matter what, our collective existence is all about love. That our salvation actually depends upon love. That love is the only thing that can bring us together. Love is the only thing that can save us. And the amazing thing about love? You can't really explain it. You don't really need to explain it. Because it just is. Love... just is. 

And so, what's up with this $35 t shirt, anyway? Well, this is not just about buying a t shirt. It's about supporting the journey of Brooklyn Quartet, to help get this story in front of as many people as possible. To contribute to all that it takes to continue to develop a show like this. If you believe that art can contribute to a greater good, if you believe in Brooklyn Quartet and all that it stands for and all that it provokes. If you believe in the spirit of Brooklyn Quartet, then buying one of these t shirts goes a long way in putting air under the wings that are necessary for this play, that is a movement, to continue to take flight. $35 is a lot for a t shirt, yes, but the value far exceeds that dollar amount when you consider that you are contributing to something that you believe in.  

Be a part of the movement by supporting Brooklyn Quartet, by purchasing and wearing our LOVE JUST IS t shirt, so when people inevitably stop you and ask you about it, and how they can get it, tell 'em all about Brooklyn Quartet, what it's about, and how they can be a part of the movement as well. Send 'em to the website, tell them where the next performance is, and just spread the word! The most meaningful words. So simple. So powerful. Love Just Is!
