DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN Returning to Las Vegas

DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN Returning to Las Vegas

On the heels of its eighth year in Las Vegas, Defending the Caveman returns to its Downtown Las Vegas roots and spears a deal at the Showroom at the D. Preview performances begin March 19, 2015. Tickets start at $34.95++, and are now on sale by phone at 702-388-2111 or tickets.thed.com. Defending the Caveman made its debut in June 2007 in downtown Las Vegas. In addition to being the longest-running one-man show in Broadway history, it is the longest-running Broadway show in Las Vegas history.

"This city has welcomed our production with open arms," said Óskar Eiríksson, CEO of Theater Mogul. "The renewal in historic downtown is inspiring and we look forward to returning to our Vegas roots to re-launch our refreshed production."

Theater Mogul, a global theatrical production company with shows in more than 30 countries, produces Defending the Caveman worldwide and will introduce a new caveman set, modernized twists in the script and additional productions elements with its debut at the D.

Defending the Caveman is scheduled nightly at 8:30 p.m. through April 3. Beginning April 4, the production will move to 4 p.m. daily with additional 8:30 p.m. performances on Thursdays and Fridays.

"Defending the Caveman is a worldwide phenomenon, and we welcome this highly acclaimed, longest running Broadway show in Las Vegas history to our vintage Vegas showroom," said Derek Stevens, CEO of the D Las Vegas.

Defending the Caveman speaks to anyone who has ever been in a relationship. The performance carries on like a conversation and dives into the differences couples may face through witty banter and insightful observations that teach the audience they're not alone in navigating relationships - the ways one fights, laughs and loves.

Returning to the one-man role will be comedian and actor Kevin Burke. Burke was recognized as Las Vegas Entertainer of The Year in 2008, and received the Guinness World Record for most performances in a 50-day period. He has performed Defending the Caveman more than 3,500 times since 2003. Joining the Las Vegas team in 2014, esteemed writer, director, stage and television actor John Venable will continue his performance schedule in the Caveman role. Venable has been performing nationally in Defending the Caveman since 2012. Defending the Caveman Worldwide Defending the Caveman has both sexes roaring with laughter and recognition. Affectionate nudging between audience members occurs during the performance as they recognize themselves in the stories being told on stage.

This smash hit about the sexes is an international sensation that has toured the United States and more than 40 countries with production in nearly 30 languages. Defending the Caveman originally opened in San Francisco in 1991, moved to Broadway in 1995, and after running two and a half years, playing 702 performances at the Helen Hayes Theater, Caveman entered the record books as the longest-running solo play in Broadway history. Comedian Rob Becker wrote Defending the Caveman over a three-year period during which he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology. This prehistoric look at the battle of the sexes is full of hilarious scenarios that celebrate the differences between men and women. Defending the Caveman is produced by Theater Mogul, a global theatrical production company with shows in more than 30 countries performed in over 16 different languages. Theater Mogul's main offices are located in New York City, Zurich and Reykjavik. The Las Vegas production of Defending the Caveman is in partnership with Las Vegas based Ivory Star Productions, a theatrical and special events production company.
