DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN Comes to Harris Center For Five Shows!
Could comedy give couples therapy a run for its money? Defending the Caveman mines the common themes in relationships that go straight through the funny bone and into the heart, making us laugh at all the ways that men and woman fight, laugh and love. "There's a tender thread that runs through the story: the basic struggle of a man trying to figure out how best to care for the person he has chosen to spend his life with" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).

Written by comedian Rob Becker over a three-year period during which he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology, Defending the Caveman is the longest running solo play in Broadway's history and the longest running Broadway show in Las Vegas history, playing seven days a week into its ninth season. The show is produced in 45 countries and over 30 different languages making it officially the most popular date night comedy in the world. It comes to the Harris Center just in time for Valentine's Day. "Defending The Caveman" is a nationwide comic phenomenon!" (The New York Times).
Cody Lyman will take the stage for the Harris Center's five performances of Defending the Caveman. Cody helped foster and co-produced CSU Theatre Sports (now Clownbox Productions), still one of the most successful improv troupes in Colorado. He left the Rocky Mountains to move to Chicago, where his work as a trolley-driving tour guide gave him a crash-course in Chicago history, and allowed him to work his way through the famed Second City Conservatory.
Defending the Caveman offers a hilariously insightful prehistoric look at the original battle of the sexes. Full of scenarios that celebrate the differences between men and women, Caveman has also garnered praise from a multitude of marriage and family therapists across the nation. "An outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap..." (Chicago Sun-Times).
