New York, NY (December 16, 2014) – Award-winning New York actor/playwright Dan Hoyle’s newest solo show, Each And Every Thing, will play Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater for two special performances in the new year, following its sold-out, one-night-only engagement at the Pub in October.  The work premiered at The Marsh San Francisco MainStage Theater where it became an instant hit, receiving unanimous rave reviews.

Hoyle developed the show along with Charlie Varon and Maureen ToweyEach And Every Thing features direction by Varon, sound design by David Hines, lighting design by Erich Blazeski, and original music by Mark Weiner.

Each And Every Thing received the highest rating from the San Francisco Chronicle, which called it a “smartly constructed and highly entertaining, globe trotting ‘slow-tech movement’ embodiment of the essential need to prioritize face-to-face, real-world relationships.” It was also called a “poignant, funny comment on the digital age” by the San Jose Mercury News. From a showdown with a violent felon in small-town Nebraska, to a childhood listening to anti-conformist rants in San Francisco; from the hard-scrabble corner boys of Chicago to the intellectual temple of Calcutta's famed coffeehouse; from a Digital Detox retreat in remote Northern California to an intimate confession in Manhattan, Each And Every Thing finds Hoyle searching for true community, spontaneity, and wonder in a fractured and hyper-connected world.

Each And Every Thing will play 7pm January 8th and January 26th at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater. Tickets are priced at $22 and are now on sale via the phone at 212-967-7555, online at publictheater.org, or in person at the Public Theater box office, open at 2:00PM daily.

Dan Hoyle’s previous solo show The Real Americans, also directed by Charlie Varon, enjoyed a critically acclaimed run at  Culture Project's Lynn Redgrave Theater in Spring 2014 after playing Joe's Pub and touring to Berkeley Repertory Theater, Cleveland Playhouse, Portland Center Stage, The Painted Bride in Philadelphia, The Lensic in Santa Fe, and The Park Hotel in Calcutta, India. The New Yorker called it “smart, entertaining, funny, insightful, and surprising.” It originated at The Marsh Theater in San Francisco and was dubbed “Best Solo Show” by SF Weekly, a Top Ten play by the San Francisco Chronicle, and was nominated for a Bay Area Theater Critics Circle award for Outstanding Solo Show. The New Yorker called it “smart, entertaining, funny, insightful, and surprising.” His solo show Tings Dey Happen, also helmed by Varon, won the 2007 Will Glickman Award for Best New Play before running five months at Culture Project, where it was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show. Tings Dey Happen, called “Funny and poignant. Riveting. First-rate,” by The New York Times, was based on Hoyle’s experiences as a Fulbright Scholar living in the Niger Delta of Nigeria studying oil politics. In October 2009, Hoyle returned to Nigeria to perform the show in five Nigerian cities, sponsored by the U.S. State Department.

Charlie Varon is an artist-in-residence at The Marsh in San Francisco, where he has been writing, performing, directing and teaching for over 20 years. As collaborator/director, Varon has worked with performer Dan Hoyle since 2004, on his solo shows CircumnavigatorTings Dey Happen and The Real Americans. As playwright/performer, Varon’s award-winning shows – all created in collaboration with David Ford – have enjoyed extended runs at The Marsh and traveled around the country. These include Rush Limbaugh in Night School (1994), The People’s Violin (2000), Rabbi Sam (2009), and his recent hit comedy, Feisty Old Jew.

Maureen Towey received a 2013 TCG Leadership U Fellowship with Berkeley Rep, a 2009 Princess Grace/Baryshnikov Arts Center Work-in-Progress Award, a 2007 Princess Grace Fellowship, and a 2006 Fulbright Scholarship in South Africa.
