Due to the intimate and interactive nature of the show, only 50 seats will be sold for each performance.

Every Brilliant Thing

by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe
New Jersey Premiere

September 21 - October 8, 2017

You're six years old. Mom's in the hospital. Dad says she's "done something stupid." She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that's brilliant about the world. Everything that's worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she's read it because she's corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.

This solo show that is performed in the round had its debut in London and then travelled to Off-Broadway in 2016. In it, the protagonist engages the audience by asking them to read items from the list and, occasionally, to help him tell his story. Sincere but not sentimental, Every Brilliant Thing deals with mental illness and its impact on a family. It employs humor and theatricality to reveal the way tragedy can yield both sweetness and sorrow
