We enjoyed the show, he was very funny. Unfortunately are seats were not good at all. We were seated to the left of the stage which wasn't bad but the way the chairs are setup was uncomfortable. I also had a rather tall woman in front of me,...continued

I took my best friend and her parents to the show. Ages ranged from 44 to 72 and we all loved it. Very relatable and a well done funny and smart depiction of the differences between men and women.

More Information


The wildly popular comedy Defending the Caveman was written by Rob Becker over a 3-year period during which he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology. Caveman has since become a peacemaker in the ongoing misunderstandings between men and women.   


Caveman_ originally opened in San Francisco in 1991 and soon moved to Dallas. After a year in Dallas — now an unqualified hit — Caveman went on to sold-out engagements in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Chicago, before opening on Broadway in 1995. 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.
