Director’s Quote: “My biggest fascination with theatre is directing a piece of work that is innately live and cannot be created to be consumed on a hand-held device or… a 180 degrees imax screen. Every Brilliant Thing is everything that is good about theatre. It’s community, it’s sharing, it's honest, it’s joyful. It has dramatic moments that are heightened and simple things that hurt. It’s very human. What I love about this play is that it is participative in nature. The audience is constantly involved in what is going to happen, they almost will the show forward."
