Don’t miss Joshua Harmon’s critically-acclaimed new play Significant Other, starring Gideon Glick, Oscar and Tony nominee Barbara Barrie, John Behlmann, Sas Goldberg, Lindsay Mendez, Luke Smith and Rebecca Naomi Jones, currently playing at The Booth Theatre (222 West 45th St.). Significant Other will play its final performance on Sunday, April 23rd at 7 PM. Significant Other officially opened Thursday, March 2nd, and at the time of closing will have played a total of 79 performances.
Meet Jordan Berman. He’s single. And he has a date with a co-worker to see a documentary about the Franco-Prussian war. At least, he thinks it’s a date. Significant Other follows Jordan and his three closest friends as they navigate love, friendship and New York in the twenty-something years.
People and relationships change. But what if everyone is changing faster than you? Is finding ” one” the only path to happiness? Is separation anxiety from your friends normal? At least his grandma isn’t too busy to take his calls. It’s a show that’s a lot like life – sometimes absurd, always honest and full of humor.
What the critics are saying:
The Broadway debut of author Joshua Harmon will be complemented by the Broadway debut of rising young director Trip Cullman, who guided the play to its successful off-Broadway engagement. Ms. Jones joined Mr. Glick, Ms. Barrie, Mr. Behlmann, Ms. Goldberg, Ms. Mendez and Mr. Smith, who reprised their roles following the sold out run at the Roundabout Theater Company.
The creative team includes choreography by Sam Pinkleton, scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Kaye Voyce,, lighting design byJaphy Weideman and sound design by Daniel Kluger.
Significant Other began at Roundabout Theatre Company following the professional debut and world premiere of Joshua Harmon’s play Bad Jews at Roundabout Underground’s Black Box in fall 2012. Bad Jews was the first play to transfer to the Roundabout’s Laura Pels Theatre and became the third most produced licensed play last season. Significant Other becomes Roundabout’s second new play to transfer to Broadway following the success of Stephen Karam’s Tony Award-winning play, Humans.
Significant Other is currently playing on Tuesdays & Thursdays at 7:00 PM; Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM; Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 PM; Sundays at 7:00 PM.
