Seating Options

Defending the Caveman

Defending the Caveman has played in 45 countries and has been crowned the longest-running solo show in Broadway history. Philosophizing on everything from contemporary feminism to the erogenous zone, a lone man takes shelter in his cave as he dissects the ever-waging battle of the sexes. 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 of hilarity.

Recommended for adult audiences.<p>

Stamford’s Palace Theatre

At the heart of Stamford Center for the Arts is The Palace Theatre, hailed as “Connecticut’s Most Magnificent” when it opened in 1927. Its grandeur was designed by architect Thomas Lamb of Madison Square Garden fame, who outfitted the vaudeville palace with a gilded proscenium and sweeping, pearl-shaded balconies. The opulence caught the eye of the community, leading the Stamford Advocate to proclaim “HUNDREDS TURNED AWAY, UNABLE TO OBTAIN TICKETS, AS THE NEW PALACE THEATRE OPENS DOORS.”

Although today’s tickets are easier to obtain thanks to technology, the cultural fervor surrounding The Palace continues. Audiences flock to the historic theater for performances from the Stamford Symphony and the Ballet School of Stamford. However, the venue also keeps its vaudevillian roots firmly planted by hosting comedians, musical acts, and surgeries on ventriloquist dummies atop its massive stage.<p>
