Defending the Caveman
A lone man takes shelter in his cave, and with a scratch of his chest hair, begins to ruminate on the longest war humankind has ever waged: the battle of the sexes. Philosophizing on everything from contemporary feminism to the erogenous zone, he dissects the nuances of the male and female relationship with warmth and humor. Rob Becker’s uproarious script—informed by an informal three-year study of anthropology, sociology, and prehistory—blends casual observations, such as a woman’s tendency to dominate her man’s closet, with hypothetical situations, such as men talking about what makes them cry as they pump iron, for an evening where neither gender is spared.
After being crowned the longest-running solo show in Broadway history—as well as the longest-running Broadway show in Vegas history—Defending the Caveman continues its quest for world domination with performances throughout the country and across the globe. The New York Times called the play “a nationwide comic phenomenon,” while the Boston Globe hailed it as “perceptive…witty…sweetly understanding.” To adequately cover each city, a band of comic cavemen continue to bring Becker’s affectionate dissection to new audiences. For the Harrah’s production, Chris Allen wields the spear until May 28, 2014, when he’ll hand it off to John Venable for shows starting May 30. Only July 7, 2014, Kevin Burke – a Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year who anchored the show for more than a decade – returns to the lead role. See the Harrah’s schedule for more details.
