Every Brilliant Thing
B Street Theatre regular David Pierini serves as storyteller, stand-up comic (and emcee) of this one-man show about a young man’s relationship with his depressed mother. He responds by creating a list of “brilliant things” to highlight the brighter side of life. This subject matter notwithstanding, this is a frequently funny and (on the whole) uplifting monologue, with some audience participation thrown in. Tu 6:30pm; W 2pm and 6:30pm; Th, F 8pm Sa 5pm and 9pm Su 2pm Through 9/18. $23-$35. B Street Theatre, 2711 B Street (916) 443-5300 www.bstreettheatre.org. J.H.
