About the show

The comedic and heart-wrenching off-Broadway hit transfers to Broadway. Make a date with Jordan (Gideon Glick) as he navigates friendship and courtship as a terminal single in New York City More…

All of Jordan Berman’s best friends are setting a date…and he can’t even get one. Now when he needs brunch plans, emergency dating advice, or just someone to commiserate and eat carbs with, he has to compete for attention with their new significant others. Of course he’s so happy for them, but Jordan is struggling to keep up with how fast everyone else is changing. Starring most of the original Off-Broadway cast.
