Dallas Welcomes the Return of the Longest Running Broadway Solo Comedy in History for One Final Time! (And Now, the Most Popular Comedy Performance of All Time)
DALLAS, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A peacemaker in the ongoing misunderstandings between men and women, Rob Becker's wildly popular DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN originally opened in San Francisco in June 1991 soon moving to Dallas for a full year run. An unqualified hit, CAVEMAN went on to extended sold-out engagements in Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Chicago before opening on Broadway in March 1995. After running for 2 1/2 years and 702 performances at the Helen Hayes Theater, CAVEMAN entered the record books as the longest-running solo play in Broadway history.
Becker's hilariously insightful play about the ways men and women relate has both sexes roaring with laughter and recognition. Lots of affectionate nudging goes on during the performance and couples are commonly seen strolling out into the night holding hands. Becker also has a loyal following in the therapy community, having been seen and recommended by thousands of psychologists and counselors. In 1996 Becker was invited to the annual AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy) Convention in Toronto where he performed for over 2,000 therapists.
CAVEMAN is an international hit as well with productions in London, South Africa, Iceland, Germany, Israel, and many more, and in 1999, Rob Becker received the coveted Olivier Award in London for comedic playwriting.
After 14 years, over 3 million people, and over 6000 performances in over 100 U.S. cities, CAVEMAN is returning to Dallas one last time. Also, Becker continues to work on his sequel to Caveman, CAVEDAD, about how men and women parent differently.
With humorous insights on contemporary feminism, and masculine sensitivity, gender guru Becker has found a way to mine the commonplaces of relationships that goes straight to the funny bone! ROB BECKER'S DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN returns to Dallas with perceptive and hilarious findings, offering hope for "a happily ever after" future!
