A hilariously insightful play about the ways men and women relate, 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.

Defending the Caveman makes us laugh at ourselves about all the ways men and women fight, laugh and love. That’s why couples all across America and around the world are in love with Defending the Caveman.

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 DC, 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.

    Cute show

    Cute and funny. Great to see with a spouse or very significant other. Nothing ground breaking, but leaves you with a smile and good attitude about the differences between men and women.

    Laughed the entire time

    Small intimate theater. One liners coming at you start to finish. More for the older crowd, not for families. We could relate to and understand the jokes. They never stopped. Crowd involvement and pointed comments to many in the crowd including my wife and I.
    Overall, funny and a great night.
