About the Production

Yoni worked as an assistant to playwright Stan Zimmerman on the one-night-only benefit performance of Right Before I Go. Directed by Michael Wilson (Broadway: The Trip to BountifulThe Best Man) and starring the best and brightest of Hollywood and Broadway.

Right Before I Go brings to life the last words of those lost to suicide including the heartsick, bullied, survivors of war, mentally ill and the achingly lonely. This poignant, deeply moving, and often humorous evening aims to provide a sense of understanding and hope for the living. All proceeds from this event went to the American Federation for Suicide Prevention and The Jed Foundation.
