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.

Great acting, Quirky, Resonant, Relevant

See it if You enjoy sitcom style theatre. Solid, nothing profound. Glick gives a great performance as always, in his standard Cera-style.

Don't see it if You're not into dialogue driven material. This is dialogue driven and it's all about romantic & platonic relationships, & loneliness.
