Rory O'Malley, a Tony nominee for his performance in The Book of Mormon, debuted his autobiographical show, Pub Crawl, March 10 at Joe’s Pub.
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."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
