People and relationships change. But what if everyone is changing faster than you? Is finding “The one” the only path to happiness? That’s exactly what’s racing through the mind of Jordan Berman as his best friends all find their significant others. Is separation anxiety from your friends normal? At least his grandma isn’t too busy to take his calls. It’s a show that’s a lot like life – sometimes absurd, always honest and full of humor.
Significant Other was a NY Times Critic’s Pick when it premiered last summer at Roundabout Theatre Company. Charles Isherwood, writing in for The New York Times hailed it as, “an absolutely wonderful new play about a young man yearning for a romantic connection as his best friends are transformed into bridezillas, one by one. As richly funny as it is ultimately heart-stirring.” Time Out (Adam Feldman) agreed, noting “as funny as Harmon’s breakthrough play Bad Jews, Significant Other is a timely, well-observed, sharp but bittersweet New York comedy; the play’s main assets are the keenness of the writing, studded with wry one-liners, and the humanity of the performances.” The New York Observer (Rex Reed) declared: “Significant Other is for everyone looking for a timeshare in the space we all occupy when life moves faster than we do. A wonderful play about unrequited love, offered with warmth and without sentimentality. I doubt if there is anyone who is unable to relate profoundly to the characters in this play and what they go through.” The Hollywood Reporter (David Rooney) summed it up as follows: “A funny-sad, vibrantly contemporary lonely-heart portrait.”
Significant Other began at Roundabout Theatre Company following the professional debut and world premiere of Joshua Harmon’s play Bad Jews at Roundabout Underground’s Black Box in fall 2012. Bad Jews was the first play to transfer to the Roundabout’s Laura Pels Theatre and became the third most produced licensed play last season. Significant Other becomes Roundabout’s second new play to transfer to Broadway following the success of Stephen Karam’s Tony Award-winning play, The Humans.
