Every Brilliant Thing: Future Fundraiser

Special Announcement

While we planned to hold this fundraiser in September 2020 at Center Stage Theater, we decided to postpone it into the future. We are still 100% committed to holding this fundraiser and will be sharing announcements with our supporters about its timing very soon!

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.
