Longest-running Broadway comedy show comes to Alabang on Valentine weekend

“Defending the Caveman,” the longest running one-man comedy show in Broadway history and the winner of the 2001 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, plays at the Insular Life Auditorium in Alabang on Chinese New Year and Valentine’s weekend, February 13 and 14, 2010, 7 p.m.

Theater veteran Joel Trinidad plays the role of the Caveman.

There is hardly a topic more discussed than the difference between men and women. Hundreds of books have been written on the subject but there are few texts that take on this eternal debate quite like Rob Becker’s “Defending the Caveman”. To date, the show has won the hearts of millions in over 35 countries in more than 16 different languages. The Chicago Sun Times has dubbed it an “outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap”, while the New York Times proclaimed it “a comic phenomenon”.

Comedian Rob Becker wrote the play over a three-year period. He gathered insights from psychology, sociology and prehistory, and seamlessly blended this knowledge with his stand-up comedy expertise. Becker fills “Defending the Caveman” with hilarious observations on the ever-evolving battle of the sexes, making the show perfect entertainment for a couple’s night out.

Trinidad is known for his comedic performances as Vice Principal Panch in the “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” and as Trekkie Monster in “Avenue Q”. He is also a founding member of the comedy group SPIT (Silly People’s Improv Theater). Direction is by Theater Down South’s creative director Michael Williams and by Repertory Philippines’ Cathy Azanza-Dy.

“Defending the Caveman” is brought to you by CTE Productions and Theater Mogul in cooperation with the San Miguel 632-BEER(2337) Home Delivery Service and Insular Life Assurance Company, Ltd.
