Rehearsals Start for “Every Brilliant Thing”

Michael Amendola* (Actor), Sarah Butts (Director), Jessica Taylor Edwards* (Stage Manager), and the MMT Staff on the first day of rehearsal.
Rehearsals are up and running for our production of “Every Brilliant Thing” – the first one-man show that Mill Mountain Theatre has produced in over 10 years.
“You’re six years old. Your mother’s in the hospital. You’re told she finds it hard to be happy. So you start making a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world: 1. Ice Cream, 2. Kung Fu Movies, 3. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out of your nose.”
Every Brilliant Thing is a one-man show about an individual’s journey with their mother and her struggle with mental health. The Guardian calls it “Heart-wrenching, hilarious…possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see.” (Michael Amendola & Jessica Taylor Edwards appear courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association.)
