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 writing, Great acting, Hilarious, Profound, Resonant

See it if you'd like to see a contemporary playwright's work in action with an equally gifted cast. It's a perfect amount of feeling and thinking.

Don't see it if you're looking for spectacle theater or a musical. Don't see it if you don't like new talent.

Also Gideon's acting is impeccable. His character exhibits a lot of insecur... Read more Read less

Cliched, Funny, Intense, Indulgent

See it if you are currently in your 30's and enjoy contemporary plays. Many people relate to the content of this show: romance in the era of texts.

Don't see it if contemporary, every day drama of a 30 y/o doesn't interest you. To me, the characters were caricatures of 30 y/os today; partially surface.
