Defending the Caveman on its last weekend, May 20-21
Catch the last two performances of “Defending the Caveman,” the “perfect date play” (BusinessWorld) that’s also the longest-running one-man show in Broadway history, on May 20 (Friday) and May 21 (Saturday), 8 p.m., at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, 4/F RCBC Plaza, Makati City.
Starring Joel Trinidad and directed by Michael Williams and Cathy Azanza-Dy, this “hilarious” and “insightful” (The Manila Bulletin) piece tackles the countless differences between men and women in a humorous, engaging and highly entertaining way.
Says producer Ria Pangilinan, “I wasn't really sure if people would want to see this kind of show here if it didn't star a mainstream personality. I still remember people's reactions when we first told them about 'Caveman.' Disinterested, he moment they heard 'monologue by a man!' It really took a lot of creative persuasion to initially make people watch even just a rehearsal. But Joel along with directors Cathy and Michael, had one goal in mind: to make Joel own the show against all odds so that his unique personality and sincerity would come across to the audience. And I think they did a fantastic job! The number one reason people found out about the show was through a friend. Some people have actually seen the show more than twice, bringing a different group of people with them. We've certainly cone a long way from forcing our friends to watch 'a monologue by a man.'”
Stand-up comic Rob Becker wrote “Defending the Caveman” over a three-year period, during which he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology, resulting in a play with funny insights on contemporary feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zones.
“Defending the Caveman” has now played in over 35 countries in more than 16 different languages--and still counting.
The show is mounted by CTE Productions and Theater Mogul in cooperation with San Miguel 632-Home Delivery Service, BusinessWorld and TheMillionaireSocietyNow.com
