There are many pubs, restaurants and bars near the venue location. We ate at Beretta's, a cool, hip and urban atmosphere. The wait was calculated to be an hour so we chose to eat outside at the bistro tables where they had heaters setup. It wasn't extremely cold, so it was tolerable. The food was average, nothing to write home about, mostly italian.

I don't care what her current crazy therapist thinks, I think reliving this day after day, month after month, can't be healthy. If you're looking for a pure fun night out this isn't it. If you want to go through angst along with the actor, this...continued

Enjoyed the performance quite a bit. Lots of laughs and shared sorrow arising from human experience. Assuming the tragedy was indeed based on fact, I felt honored being entrusted to participate in the performer's attempt to work through it. I look...continued

Marilyn Pittman's play touches on so many themes of family and marriage. She makes us question our own relationships while keeping us laughing through our tears. A triumph!

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.
