When EVERY BRILLIANT THING debuted at the Arden in 2017, it was loved by both audiences and critics alike. WHYY called the production “a gem,” and the show quickly became one of Philadelphia’s hottest theatre tickets. Now, Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe’s gripping one-man play, starring Scott Greer and directed by the Arden’s Producing Artistic Director Terry Nolen, returns to the Arden for a third engagement from November 3 through December 11, 2022 at the Arden’s Arcadia Stage.
“What makes Every Brilliant Thing so special is because of how the play involves the audience, the show is different every single night,” adds Nolen. “Part of Scott Greer’s brilliance in this role is that he is able to involve the audience in a truly unique experience each performance. We look forward to having new audiences see the play and welcoming back all of those who said they couldn’t wait to see it again.”
This moving, insightful and hilarious one-person play that is unlike anything you’ve seen before. Arden favorite Scott Greer, who won a Barrymore Award for his previous work in Every Brilliant Thing, leads audiences through a remarkable journey that truly examines what makes life worth living – and the power of theatre to bring people together.
Single tickets to Every Brilliant Thing are currently on sale at the Arden’s box office, or online at ardentheatre.org. Student and military discounts available.
Safety and Health
Safety continues to be front of mind for us as we start this season. At this point in time, masks are optional, but strongly encouraged. All Arden employees are required to be vaccinated, but we will no longer be checking vaccination cards for audience members. We will of course continue to monitor local and CDC guidelines and will share any updates to our safety plan directly with you. You can find our current health and safety practices at ardentheatre.org/reopeningplan. Thank you for helping to make the Arden safe for all – audiences, artists and staff.
