All the Rage, a new solo play by Martin Moran, debuts Off-Broadway Jan. 19 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. The work reunites Moran with his Obie-winning The Tricky Part collaborator Seth Barrish.



Written and performed by Moran, All the Rage officially opens Jan. 30 for a run through Feb. 24. Barrish, who directed Moran's Obie-winning 2004 solo play The Tricky Part, helms the work.

Here's how it's billed: "What happens when a mild-mannered Manhattanite shows up at his father's Las Vegas funeral and ends up in a fight with his fuming stepmother? Or when he suddenly finds himself in a room translating the details of an asylum seeker's torture? In All the Rage, his new solo work, Martin Moran takes us on a quest from West of the Rockies to South of Johannesburg, unearthing the unexpected connections and human hilarities that arise as he attempts to resolve an ancient riddle: how is it that in one moment we might reach out in compassion and in the next…kill?"

Moran's stage appearances also include Monty Python's Spamalot, Cabaret, Titanic, Bells Are Ringing, How To Succeed, Fun Home, Floyd Collins, A Man of No Importance and Cider House Rules.

The engagement is presented by piece by piece productions, Rising Phoenix Repertory and The Barrow Group.
