Defending the Caveman, one of the most venerable one-man comedies in theater history, continues its successful evolution to the delight of Pittsburgh audiences. A smash hit since Broadway's Mesozoic Era, Rob Becker's anthropological one-man study of baffling gender behavior has slain theaters around the globe with its insightful jabs and fantasy synchronized-swimming-league references. Chock full of ticklish topics that hit home with adult audiences, Defending the Caveman bonds both sexes like a comical couples’ therapy session that heals without the need to play vertigo-inducing trust games.
The theater space’s seating (assigned upon purchase) is cleverly arranged in cabaret style, eschewing the need for night-vision goggles while watching the stage or ordering food and drinks. The Pittsburgh CLO is a prestigious, nonprofit cultural institution, so inner theater buffs' inner philanthropists' consciences will be pleased.
