BWW Review: New Musical EVERY SILVER LINING is a Beautiful Exploration of Grief and LossBWW Review: New Musical EVERY SILVER LINING is a Beautiful Exploration of Grief and Loss
by Lauren Gienow - Aug 28, 2019

On Sunday night, audiences in Stratford Ontario were treated to a performance of a new musical that had most recently been seen at Toronto's Fringe Festival. EVERY SILVER LINING was brought to the stage at Stratford City Hall for one night only as a way to continue to workshop it and to be a homecoming of sorts for former Stratford resident Jennifer Stewart, who directed the show and is in the ensemble. Written by book writer Laura Piccinin and Composer/Lyricist Allison Wither, EVERY SILVER LINING tells the story of young people processing death and dying.
