THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? Opens Tonight at Avenue Theater
'Hilarious' is the only way to describe THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? as Robert Dubac, ransacks his brain to answer the age old question, "What do women want?"

THE MALE INTELLECT has garnered envious reviews from San Francisco to Toronto, Chicago to LA. The Boston Globe proclaims, "Robert Dubac is talented, entertaining and very funny!" The Los Angeles Times says, "The show elicits big laughs from both sexes in waves of treble and bass" while The Philadelphia Inquirer states, "THE MALE INTELLECT is adeptly conceived, refreshingly and comically stated and Dubac has no trouble keeping it up for 90 minutes." The Denver Post and Toronto Star both gave the show its highest four-star rating, raving "THE MALE INTELLECT is hilarious as it is thought-provoking...a brilliant show."
When the show opens we meet "Bobby" in a very confused state having been dumped by the girl of his dreams. Unable to understand why, he channels some not-so-wise but hilarious advice from his five chauvinistic mentors. With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck Robert Dubac seamlessly transforms himself into these five alter egos; each offering their own brand of misguided advice. They are.
THE COLONEL who insists that the key to what women want is honesty, hence all men should admit they're boneheads so they always have an out.
JEAN-MICHEL who says communication is what women want.... and communicating with double-talk and mindless metaphors is completely acceptable as long as you speak with an sexy accent.
FAST EDDIE who gives women want they want - passion! But he doles it out from the fast lane professing men have to "love 'em fast and leave 'em first".
OLD MR. LINGER who believes women want a sense of humor. He understands women can play hard to get. He also understands that if a man plays hard to get - he doesn't get anything. Old Mr. Linger is 123 years old and believes he has discovered the secret to life. Remaining single.
RONNIE CABREZZI who believes all women want is some sensitivity. He also thinks sharing your secrets makes you sensitive. However, the kind of secrets he shares with his fiancé, Lucy, just piss her off.
Bobby realizes their suggestions are worthless but with help from his "feminine side" he is able to sift through the bad advice and discover the real answer to the age-old question, "What do women want?" And he does it all while drinking a beer. Brace yourself, ladies, cause this is how men think.
