Comedian, radio host and performance coach Marilyn Pittman says she grew up in a funny family. Then her father shot her mother. And then himself.

Her show “It’s All the Rage” talks about what happened that day, and the sad and sometimes funny moments that followed.

Pittman first performed her solo show at the Marsh Theater in 2010, then took it to New York, where she won the award for best one-woman show at the 2011 United Solo Festival. Tonight and through April 15, she’s back at the Marsh.
