Rory O'Malley, a Tony nominee for his performance in The Book of Mormon, will debut his autobiographical show, Pub Crawl, March 10 at Joe's Pub. In anticipation of his solo show, O'Malley picks his favorite Irish pub songs as part of this week's Playbill Playlist

Pub Crawl, according to press notes, "is Rory’s hilarious coming of age story that tells the tale of being raised in an Irish pub on the west side of Cleveland by his single mom and all of the bar’s eclectic patrons. Using classic Irish pub songs from The Wolftones, U2, Van Morrison and more, the evening will feature music direction by Tony and Grammy Award winner, Stephen Oremus."

Show time is at 7:30 PM. 

In anticipation of the concert, and in celebration of St. Patrick's Day, O'Malley picks his favorite Irish pub songs and tells us why they made the list. 

O'Malley is best known for starring in the original company of The Book of Mormon on Broadway, earning Tony and Drama Desk nominations for playing openly closeted Mormon Elder McKinley. His Broadway debut was in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and he was recently seen Off-Broadway in Little Miss Sunshine. He is the co-founder of the non-profit organization Broadway Impact, which mobilizes theatre communities across the country and around the world to take action for marriage equality.

Joe's Pub is located at 425 Lafayette Street. For more information and tickets, call (212) 967-7555 or visit
