Marilyn finds the humor in a horrific situation. At times a bit uncomfortable but also funny. She's a great story teller.

Great show.... some laughter and some sighs. Intense at times then she turned it right around with humor. I really enjoyed this show.. and thought how brave to tell this story.

excellent, honest, hard hitting, creative effort. ms. pittman tells it like it is, unburdens herself, and takes the audience with her on her sad, poignant, powerful journey.

Description

Marilyn Pittman grew up in a funny family. And then her dad shot her mom. And then himself. He was a WWII vet, she was a passive-aggressive poet. The ‘greatest generation?’ Nah. Love is deadly. It could happen to you. Pittman survived it. Mostly. And she’s a comic.

Marilyn Pittman’s It’s All The Rage won Best One-Woman Show at the 2011 United Solo Festival, the world’s largest solo performance festival, in New York City. It is ‘the funniest show you’ll ever see about murder-suicide.’ 28 scenes in 60 minutes; a tour de force of acting, stand-up, and reading from her parents’ love letters and journals. This show is recommended for ages 18 and older.
