Being Best Man can be stressful. Being Best Man days after you get divorced can lead to an existential crisis.

Worth Critics. Other NYC acting: Stupid F**cking Bitch by Lucy Alibar (EST/Youngblood) and Binge by Thomas Ward (Slant Theatre Project). Regional acting: Keeping Watch (Piccolo Spoleto); Hamlet, Arms and the Man, Merry Wives of Windsor (Alabama Shakespeare Festival), Much Ado About Nothing (Warehouse Theatre).
