Roundabout's SIGNIFICANT OTHER to Host Post-Show Discussion on Dating, Marriage
Roundabout Theatre Company announces a special post-show discussion about the evolution of dating and marriage in conjunction with Joshua Harmon's new comedy, Significant Other. The discussion is immediately following the 2:00pm matinee performance of Significant Other on June 27 and tickets are complimentary for all Significant Other ticketholders on Saturday, June 27 at 2:00pm.
Panelists include Brian Silva, Executive Director of Marriage Equality USA, the nation's oldest organization dedicated to building equality for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community through civil marriage equality in every state and at the federal level; and Laurie Davis, Founder and CEO of eFlirt Expert, a consulting company created to help singles navigate the intersection of romance and technology to attract an ideal match.
Significant Other is now in preview performances Off-Broadway and opens officially on Thursday, June 18, 2015 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This is a limited engagement through Sunday, August 16, 2015.
A quarter?life coming?of?age story that's as hilarious as it is heart?wrenching, Significant Other takes us into the trenches of single life in the city. Jordan Berman would love to be in love, but that's easier said than done. So until he meets Mr. Right, he wards off lonely nights with his trio of close?knit girlfriends. But as singles' nights turn into bachelorette parties, Jordan finds that supporting the ones you love can be just as impossible as finding love itself.
Roundabout Theatre Company's relationship with Joshua Harmon began when his play Bad Jews was selected for the inaugural Roundabout Underground Reading Series for Emerging Playwrights in February 2012. The play then premiered at Roundabout Underground's Black Box in Fall 2012, in a sold?out extended run. In Fall 2013, Harmon's Bad Jews moved upstairs to the 420?seat Laura Pels Theatre, enjoying a critically acclaimed extended engagement, and was the third most produced play around the country this season. In addition to
Significant Other, a third Harmon play is in development, commissioned by Roundabout, with workshops set to begin in 2015.
Significant Other, directed by Trip Cullman, features Barbara Barrie (Helene), John Behlmann (Will/Conrad/Tony), Sas Goldberg (Kiki), Gideon Glick (Jordan), Lindsay Mendez (Laura), Carra Patterson (Vanessa) and Luke Smith (Gideon/Evan/Roger).
Tickets for Significant Other are available by calling 212.719.1300, online at roundabouttheatre.org, and in person at Roundabout's Laura Pels Theatre Box office (111 West 46th Street). All tickets are $79.
