The answer is simple and profoundin this one-of-a-kind theatricalexperience.It’s the story of a man who, at age seven, in order to cheer up his mom when she first tries to end her life begins compiling a list of the minutiae that make life worth living.Things like ‘ice cream’ and ‘water fights’ give way years later to ‘listening to Miles Davis’ and ‘falling in love.’ Eventually, the ever-growinglist is as much for him as it was for his mom.Since 2015, the show has captured hearts and minds as an Off-Broadway hit, a World Tour, an HBO adaptation and runs at both large and small theatres across the country. The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive by audiences and critics alike.And now Every Brilliant Thing is coming to the intimate Monroe Stagefor a one-weekend run to benefit the Playhouse’s ‘Buy the Building’ fund.

A Brilliant Performer
Craig helms the show, tackling a serious subject with disarming, comfortable frankness. Most interesting is that theaudience is part of the show. Craig, as only Craig can, invites participation in a warm, engaging way putting everyone at ease right from the start.The stage is bare, the lights are on, classical jazz music plays on and strangers soon become friends. Both humorous and heartrending Every Brilliant Thing is an unforgettable night of theatre!
