The Brick and its company, The Brick Theater, Inc., were founded in 2002 by Robert Honeywell and Michael Gardner. Formerly an auto-body shop, a yoga center, and various storage spaces, this brick-walled garage in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was completely refurbished as a state-of-the-art performance space.

The Brick has been home to many critically acclaimed premieres, including Memoirs of My Nervous Illness, Bizarre Science Fantasy, Tupperware Orgy, In a Strange Room (based on Faulkner's As I Lay Dying), Dear Dubya, Fallout Follies, World Gone Wrong, My Year of Porn, Who Is Wilford Brimley?, Jenna Is Nuts, Habitat, Absence of Magic, Assyrian Monkey Fantasy (in two movements), and The Pragmatists.

The Summer Theme Festival Series presented The Hell Festival in 2004, The Moral Values Festival in 2005, The $ellout Festival in 2006, and continues with The Pretentious Festival in Summer 2007. In addition, The Brick has also produced a short-works program called Brick-a-Brac, a collection of holiday-themed one-act plays known as The Baby Jesus One-Act Jubilee, and the hugely successful New York Clown Theatre Festival (the first of its kind in New York in over twenty years.
