defending the caveman
Comes to Houston to tickle funny bones and make peace between the sexes
The longest-running solo play in Broadway history comes to Hobby Center Zilkha Hall June 3-14
HOUSTON―Starting June 3, Houston couples are sure to be roaring with laughter, sharing knowing glances and stroll out of the theater hand in hand after experiencing Defending the Caveman.
With hilarious insight on contemporary feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zones, Defending the Caveman mines the common themes in relationships that go straight to the funny bone while warming the heart. Defending the Caveman makes us laugh at ourselves, about all the ways that men and woman fight, laugh and love.
Caveman’s “outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap” (Chicago Sun Times) has made it “a comic phenomenon” (New York Times) that has won the hearts of millions in more than 35 countries.
Written by comedian Rob Becker over a three year period that included an informal study of psychology, sociology and prehistory, Defending the Caveman is full of wonderful scenarios that celebrate the differences between men and women. This is a comedy men will enjoy, making it the perfect entertainment option for couples, or a girls night out.
Defending the Caveman will be performed by Raymond McAnally who hails from Franklin, Tennessee, where he says all the country music stars go to buy a farm and “feel all rural.” His television credits include 30 Rock (NBC-Universal); Order of the Serpentine (SpikeTV); Guiding Light (CBS); and The Agency (Pilot 2007 NYTVF). Film credits include Ghost Town (Dreamworks), Penance and various short films.
His notable theater credits include The Foreigner at Cincinnati Playhouse, for which he received the 2009 Acclaim Award for Outstanding Supporting Performance and the original Off-Broadway cast of God’s Ear at the Vineyard Theater.
