Every Brilliant Thing: Future Fundraiser (2021)

Special Announcement

While we planned to hold this fundraiser in September 2020 at Center Stage Theater, we decided to postpone it until 2021. We are still planning to hold this event as our next fundraiser in the fall of 2021.

What is Every Brilliant Thing?

Jonny Donahoe’s one-man show, Every Brilliant Thing, (which he co-wrote and originally performed) is one of the funniest and most heart-warming performances you will ever see about a boy growing up in the wake of his mother’s mental illness. The show has been performed more than six hundred times on four continents, including five months off-Broadway at the Barrow Street Theater.

Every Brilliant Thing has been replicated by dozens of comedians throughout the world, and HBO has even produced a documentary special about the performance. We are very fortunate to bring the co-creator and original performer of Every Brilliant Thing to Santa Barbara and are excited to share this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with our donors and community members for our next annual fundraiser. We also plan on showing a matinee performance the day following the fundraiser.
