All the Rage!, a wonderfully romantic, hetero/gay, neurotically dark comedy, focuses on rage and how we either suppress it or allow it to take over our lives. When Attic Artistic Director Jerry Kernion discovered the play he realized it had never been done on the West Coast, so he contacted playwright Keith Reddin, who granted him the rights and suggested Brian Shnipper as director based on Shnipper's "terribly swift staging" (Alvin Klein, The New York Times) of the show at 12 Mile West in New Jersey.
All the Rage! was commissioned in 1997 by the Goodman Theatre in Chicago where it won three Joseph Jefferson awards including Best New Play. Playwright Keith Reddin - known for his darkly comic satires where bad things happen to good people - also wrote the screenplay to the movie, retitled It's the Rage. The film, which became a gay themed cult classic, featured Joan Allen, David Schwimmer, Jeff Daniels, and Gary Sinese.
All the Rage! is recommended for adult audiences only.
